Consider it would be useful to show a prime habitat for Primula boothii susbp. autumnalis in the Annapurna region - beside and behind waterfalls -so wet/seepage conditions amongst mosses.
Plus one shot of a clump whose flowers have started to go over- one does not always catch specimens at the peak of flowering.

Fwd: Primula boothii subsp. autumnalis in Nepal : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (2)
Here with a couple of photos taken by my eldest son in November in the Annapurna region of Nepal which I believe to be Primula boothii Craib subsp. autumnalis A.J Richards.
In Professor Richards book 'Primula' he describes this as a distinct invariably autumn-flowering form of P.boothii with large deep purple flowers with an orange eye and lacking a white zone to the flower. 
This appears to be the first submission for this species.
