provided by wikipedia EN

Buxus colchica (syn. B. hyrcana) is a species of Buxus native to Azerbaijan, Georgia, Russia, and Turkey. It is threatened by habitat loss[1] and defoliation by the caterpillars of an introduced moth species, Cydalima perspectalis.[2]

It is an evergreen shrub or small tree, very closely related to Buxus sempervirens, and commonly treated as a synonym of it.[3][4] It does not differ from B. sempervirens in any visible character.[5]
