Saussurea blanda Schrenk.
Songoria, Alatau..., Saratau, 12.VII.1841, Schrenk, N 276.
In the protologue of Saussurea blanda there is indication that the plant was collected on 12.VII.1841. In LE there are 2 herbarium specimens collected by Schrenk from one place "Songorei, Alatau..., Saratau, Schrenk, N 276" with the same date of collection on the labels. Lipschitz (1979) choose as lectotype specimen with the label "Songoria, Alatau, Dshamantyk et Dshabyk", but its date of collection (13.IX.1843) differs from the one in protologue.
