Corydalis foetida
« on: June 10, 2019, 05:25:01 PM »
Hi all, I received seed of Corydalis foetida in the last seed exchange, and while I love the excitement of something new from see, I'm even more curious to find out what this plant looks like both colour and form because I can find nothing helpful online. Someone must have donated it so perhaps they could help?  :D

There is no mention of such a species in the Corydalis book by Tebbitt, Liden & Zetterlund either. Have the seeds germinated?

You can read its description in the Flora of china : http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=250090067
Be careful, this in an annual species !
I also found the chinese name of this species here : http://www.cfh.ac.cn/BioBook/SCList/1/430.html and you can use it to search pictures with google with this link : https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=%E8%87%AD%E9%BB%84%E5%A0%87
In this paper, it is closed to C. balansae and parviflora : https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305731475_The_taxonomic_position_of_Corydalis_parviflora_Su_Liden_Papaveraceae_a_genetically_distinct_species_Evidence_from_cpDNA_and_nDNA_sequences/figures

Hi all

Yes, there is a description in the Flora of China online, and it is an accepted name in The Plant List, which gives a link to the original paper naming the species. 

Hope that helps
