A plant previously known as Jurinea taraxacifolia, described from Myanmar, was recently discovered on the Chinese side of the Gaoligong Shan, the long N-S mountain range on the border between Myanmar and China. This taxon is transferred from Jurinea to Dolomiaea on account of its naked receptacle and brownish pappus bristles. It is compared with morphologically similar taxa. A detailed description and illustration of the species are provided for the first time.
