Abstract

A collection from Phou Chom Voy Provincial Protected Area, Bolikhamxai, represents the first records for the family Akaniaceae as well as the genus Bretschneidera and the species Bretschneidera sinensis in Laos. Here we report the new and extended distributional range. A detailed description and photographs are provided for easy identification.
