Chryspsplenium tenellum Hook.f. & Thomson is a tiny perennial herb growing below the rocks in shady moist area in between 2800-3600m in Uttarakhand. On account of its smallness and greenish flowers (2-4mm) it is often less collected or photographed.
Here photographed in Sunderdhunga valley (3200m) in Uttarakhand.
Image-2 is a cropped up image from image-1 to show flower.
This genus is not represented in eFI thus now need a separate page in Saxifragaceae.
