Primula jucunda has only been collected at Migyitun, Tsari Chu and Mipa, Tsari. P. jucunda var ponticola was collected once on the Bimbi La, Tsari. This species is part of a group of similar species: P. hilaris, P. elongata, P. barnardoana and P. strumosa. It looks similar to the more familiar P. strumosa (P. calderiana ssp strumosa). As well as being yellow flowered, this species is thickly coated with farina on the basal scales and underneath the leaves. The calyx is very deeply cut and the leaves are rounded or subcordate at the base. P. jucunda var ponticola has a longer tube and a decurrent leaf base.
