Justification
Although little is known about Magnolia albosericea there are thought to be very few mature individuals (less than 1,000), across its range of evergreen broadleaved forests of southern China and northern Viet Nam. It is only known to occur in three to five locations, where land use change is a plausible threat. Therefore, it is assessed as Vulnerable.
