Abstract: The genus Solms-Laubachia of Cruciferae was established by Muschler in 1912 on the basis of the Chinese species Solms-Laubachia pulcherrima of Yunnan Province. Since then, nine species, two varieties and two forms have been recorded. They are almost all endemic in China except one species—Solms-Laubachia retropilosa Botsch. which was discovered in Sikkim. We described in this paper thirteen species, three varieties and one form, of which, we suppose, three species, one variety and one combination have never been reported before. Most species grow in the mountainous regions of Szechuan, Yunnan, Tibet,Ching-hai and Sinkiang in China.
