Dear Lukas, dear Michael,
The photos are scans from a book on flowering plants of the Hengduan Mountains, written by Dr. Zhen-Dong FANG. The book is unfortunately out of print since years. A few years ago I spoke to Mr. Fang and asked were he took the photos. It was above 3000 m (around 3250 m if I rembember well) somewhere north-northwest of Zhongdian (today called Shangrila) in Northwest Yunnan. Mr. Fang made his Ph.D. on the flowering plants of that region and took many photos which provided the base for his book. The original prints show the correct pale yellow coloration of typical Cyp. farreri, the posted scans were obviously not corrected for color and brightness.

Merry Christmas!
