Aaron , I have already received a reply from Cedric Basset about the identification.
He says that bulbosum is an invalid synonym of cirrhifolium and is not accepted by "flora of China, GRIN, etc..."
What do you think ?

Its appropriate name is an old name, but it is currently lumped in with cirrhifolium. Its native range is SW-SC Sichuan and N-NE Yunnan. So far, I've never seen it outside that area, but it should be expect in neighboring Guizhou. Like many of Leveille's Polygonatum he named it twice, first bulbosum and then lebrunii, both from Yunnan and both collected by E.E. Maire. Polygonatum bulbosum shoudl be the correct name for this.
