5a. Litsea rubescens var. rubescens

红叶木姜子(原变种) hong ye mu jiang zi (yuan bian zhong)

Litsea forrestii Diels; L. rubescens f. nanchuanensis Yen C. Yang.

Leaf blade elliptic or lanceolate-elliptic. Male umbel 10-12-flowered.

● Forest margins, gaps of evergreen broad-leaved forests in valleys; 700-3800 m. Chongqing, Guizhou, Hubei, Hunan, S Shaanxi, Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan.

Litsea forrestii was treated in FRPS (31: 332. 1982) as an insufficiently known species. Its short original description shows the branchlets and flowers to be quite similar to those of L. rubescens (except for the slightly longer peduncles), and so the two entities are here treated as conspecific.
