Damyon, the type locality of Gentiana damyonensis, is determined to be a sizeable massif situated in Zogang county in southeastern Xizang (Tibet), China, not in southwestern Sichuan or more specifically Dêrong or Muli counties. Consulting of literature and survey of herbarium specimens indicate that G. damyonensis does not occur in southwestern Sichuan as previously recorded, and is currently known only from northwestern Yunnan and southeastern Xizang, China, and northern Kachin, Myanmar. A distribution map is thus provided for this species.
