Pinbian Oak (Quercus pinbianensis)

The Pinbian Oak is known only from a small region in Yunnan, China; however, the locality where this species was originally found, has high intensity agriculture now.

The species was last seen in 1953 and is believed to be possibly extinct. 


The photo below shows another species of that genus, the very widespread Ring-cupped Oak (Quercus glauca Thunb.) which also occurs naturally in many parts of China.
