A few groups of Corybas taliensis plants were found on July 25 at the Xiaoheishan provincial nature reserve, west Yunnan’s Longling county. It is the first find of the species in the area.
The discovery was made by the reserve's conservationists and later confirmed by Jiang Hong, a senior engineer at Yunnan Academy of Forestry and Grassland.
"Sensitive to climate changes, Corybas is rather particular about the living environment," said Jiang. Once moved away from the original habitat, they’ll mostly die.
In the Xiaoheishan reserve, the rare plant is seen between 2,400 and 2,950 meters above sea level, and it has been listed an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
