Note.

This was originally described by Wu and Chen (1978) based on a collection from Medog County, Xizang (Tibet), China. It was placed in the genus Hornstedtia   Retz., presumably due to the radical fusiform inflorescences covered with rigid involucral bracts enclosing oblong and smooth fruits, and pointed out that it was close to H. affinis   Ridl. ( Wu and Chen 1981). But on the basis of morphological study of flowering material originating at the type locality, the species is a member of Amomum   s.s. ( Ye et al. 2018).
