Amentotaxus hatuyenensis T.H.Nguyên

This species was described in 1996 from the karst limestone areas of Hagiang province in northern Việt Nam. Recent field work and molecular research indicates that this taxon is conspecific with Amentotaxus yunnanensis. Consequently it is due to be removed from the IUCN Redlist.


Originally described from two almost adjoining localities in Ha Giang and Ha Tuyen provinces in northern Việt Nam. These populations are now identified as A. yunnanensis.
