Plants of Tulipa mongolica are pictured in the Gogestai Khan Uul National Nature Reserve under the city of Chifeng, north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, May 14, 2023. Researchers in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region have found wild plants of Tulipa mongolica, a species that had not been sighted for more than 40 years in the region. The bright yellow flowers, distributed solitarily in Inner Mongolia, were believed to be functionally extinct after the species was last sampled in 1979.
