As a fallback option (in case nobody comes up with a made-to-measure
response) you could try the Flora of China
http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=2&taxon_id=20510

and the Flora Europaea
http://rbg-web2.rbge.org.uk/FE/fe.html

Best,
Paul

> There are about 25 species of Empria known from Europe (probably more

> this corresponds to the number of species of Rosaceae and Rosoideae in

>
> Does anybody know the species numbers or could point me to sources where
