Range DescriptionPhyllostachys carnea is endemic to the northwest part of Hunan, in southern China (Ye and Wang 1989, Clayton et al. 2002, Chen et al. 2006). This bamboo is only known from the type locality. It has been estimated that there is between 501 and 1,000 km2 of forest remaining in its range (estimate compiled from taxonomic and floristic literature combined with regional data on remaining forest cover) (Bystriakova et al. 2003).
