Quercus lineata (Fagaceae): new distribution records from China and Vietnam and its leaf anatomical features

QIANSHENG LI, JIE ZHANG, ALLEN COOMBES

Abstract


Quercus lineata is native to Malaysia and Indonesia. During our studies on herbarium collections and field collections, two new distribution records of Q. lineata were found in Hainan island, South China and Central Vietnam. All the key diagnostic features of the specimens from China and Vietnam were consistent with the specimens collected from Malaysia. The leaf anatomical features of the populations of different regions were compared. We also addressed the conservation status and biogeographic implications of the distribution of Q. lineata.
