Typical of the Muscarioides Section, this species has a spike of sessile (not stalked) flowers which droop downwards. The leaves are oblanceolate to narrowly oblong, tapering into a slightly winged petiole, with a rounded apex, entire or bluntly dentate margin and diagnostically dense scabrous-pubescent. Scapes to 28cm, glabrous, sparsely glandular or farinose at the apex. Calyx lobes ovate, sparsely glandular, apex rounded, farinose at the base. Flowers are violet, lobes obscurely emarginate, broad, strongly powdered with white meal on the face (may wash off). In the type specimens there is no distinct junction between the corolla and the tube. Though possibly found in other areas of Sichuan, this is uncertain and it is possible that it only grows in Muli.
