Description from Flora of China

Larix chinensis Beissner (1896), not Miller (1768).

First-year long branchlets grayish yellow, light yellow, or brownish yellow. Short branchlets 3-4 mm in diam., densely yellow pubescent. Seed cones 2.5-5 × 1.5-2.8 cm. Seed scales 40-55, ± strigose abaxially.

A vulnerable plant. The name Larix potaninii var. chinensis was published as a new combination based on L. chinensis Beissner (Mitt. Deutsch. Dendrol. Ges. 5: 215. 1896). However, the latter is illegitimate, being a later homonym of L. chinensis Miller (1768), so L. potaninii var. chinensis is effectively a new name based on Beissner’s type.

* Mountains; 2600-3500 m. S Shaanxi
