9a. Litsea moupinensis var. moupinensis

宝兴木姜子(原变种) bao xing mu jiang zi (yuan bian zhong)

Benzoin puberulum (Franchet) Rehder; Lindera puberula Franchet; Litsea microcarpa Yen C. Yang; L. moupinensis var. glabrescens H. S. Kung.

Leaf blade ovate, rhombic-ovate, or oblong, rarely obovate, acuminate at both ends. Fruiting peduncle less than 3 mm.

● Roadsides, weed-tree forests; 700-2300 m. Sichuan.

Litsea moupinensis var. glabrescens was established only on the basis of having sparse hairs on the branchlets and leaves. The present authors do not consider these differences to justify formal taxonomic recognition.

The leaves may be processed for their aromatic oil.
