Range DescriptionThis species is only known from the type locality (Lushui Xian), within the Gaoligong Shan region of western Yunnan, China and from cultivated plants which were grown near Lushui (Hsueh and Yi 1988, Heng et al. 2000, Zhengyi et al. 2006). The area of occupancy (AOO) could not be calculated due to the unknown sampling effort in the region. The extent of occurrence (EOO) could not be adequately estimated from only one known locality although an analysis by Bystriakova et al. (2003) estimated that between 1,000 and 5,000 km2 of forest remains within the range.
