Abstract


In November 2014, an investigation at Yunnan province, Maguan county, revealed some unknown taller plants of Aspidistra Ker Gawler (1822: 628) under shrubs at the top of the mountain. This species was identified as new for science after studying relevant literature (Li 1988, 2004, Tillich 2005, 2008, 2014, Tillich et al. 2007, He et al. 2011, Liu et al. 2011, Lin et al. 2012, 2014, 2015, Vislobokov et al. 2014, Xu et al. 2015).
