The genus Aspidistra Ker Gawl. (Asparagaceae/Ruscaceae) in Thailand
The genus Aspidistra is restricted to SE Asia, Japan and China, with about 90 species. In Thailand three species occur naturally: A. sutepensis K.Larsen, endemic to N Thailand, A. subrotata Y.Wan & C.C.Huang, and A. longifolia Hook.f. with wider distributions. Aspidistra elatior Blume can be found in cultivation. A key to the above species with a description of the native Thai species is given. One new variety is described: A. subrotata Y.Wan & C.C.Huang var. angustifolia Phonsena.
