Distribution in Thailand


Wider Distribution

Japan and China (Shantung, Anhwei and Honan).


On rocks in shade in deciduous or mixed forests at about 400 m alt.

Proposed IUCN Conservation Assessment

Least Concern (LC). This species is widespread and not under any known threat.


Geographically it is interesting to find this species in Thailand, for it is a warm temperate species in Central China and Japan. Phu Kradueng plants are peculiar in having few glandular hairs, though the Thai plants are just the same at Japanese and Chinese plants except for this feature.
