Michelia fujianensis   Q.F. Zheng. In: Xia and Deng (2002: 130) and Xia et al. (2008: 83), both p.p. quoad syn. Michelia septipetala   Z.L. Nong.

Note.

The holotype specimen of Michelia septipetala   cannot be found at IBK (Xu Wei-bin, pers. comm., July 2019). However, M. septipetala   can be easily differentiated from both M. fujianensis   and M. caloptila   , the 2 species under which it is noted in synonymy above, by the comparison of their morphological and phenological characteristics summarised in Table 8 View Table 8 below.
