There is some confusion over this name. One report says that A. hauptii. Ledeb. is a synonym for Galatella hauptii. (Ledeb.)Lindl
. This is a name that is not at present accepted by most botanists and need not concern us[K]. However, the report then goes on to say that A. hauptii. Turcz. is a synonym of Galatella dahurica. DC. (which equals A. dahuricus. (DC.)Benth.), a plant found in shrubberies, forest edges and meadows up to the mountain zone
. We assume that our record refers to A. hauptii. Ledeb. but there must be some doubt about this[K]. Just to further confuse matters, one synonym for this species is A. fastigiatus. Ledeb. and there also seems to be an A. fastigiatus. Fisch. Some further investigation is required.
