    The smallest known Parnassian, it is perhaps the one with the most limited distribution: A small region of southern Tibet around Mt Everest, east to Sikkim and Western Bhutan. A high altitude species, it emerges early in the year (April) when the ground is mostly snow covered. Life cycle not known.
