A very rare species in Uttarakhand as mentioned here. Great exploratory work …

The fig-2 which depicts the habitat (with glacier in backdrop) seems about 4000m, far above the timberline, though within the distribution of B.utilis.


This was found not far from the melting glaciers. Elevation should be around 3400m I assume. Habitat is very specific for this species.
