Description from Flora of China

Tsuga chinensis (Franchet) E. Pritzel var. oblongisquamata W. C. Cheng & L. K. Fu in W. C. Cheng & al., Acta Phytotax. Sin. 13(4): 83. 1975.

Branchlets brownish yellow or brown, relatively stout, 1.5-2 mm in diam. Leaves without white bands of stomata, margin entire, apex rounded or slightly emarginate. Seed cones narrowly ovoid or ovoid-cylindric, 2-3 × 1.5-2.5 cm. Seed scales loosely overlapping, narrowly orbicular, ca. 2 × as long as wide, exposed part glabrous. Bracts without cusp at apex.

Closely related to Tsuga chinensis and perhaps better treated as a variety of that species.

* Valleys, river basins; 2600-3200 m. S Gansu, W Hubei, N and W Sichuan
