Wang in having corolla tube cylindric, not swollen, and stigmas 2, but differs by having leaves sometimes peltate at base, cyme with only one flower, corolla lobes rounded-obtuse at apex, and capsule broadly ovoid-ellipsoid.

Key words: Paralagarosolen Y. G. Wei, Paralagarosolen fangianum Y. G. Wei, Gesneriaceae.
