Wikipedia Abstract

Pinus squamata, Qiaojia pine, zh: 巧家五针松) southern lacebark pine, is a critically endangered pine native to a single locality consisting of about 20 trees in northeast Yunnan, China, at about 2,200 m (7,200 ft) elevation. The Qiaojia pine was discovered in April 1991 by Pangzhao J.Q. It was studied later that year and described the following year by Li Xiang-Wang. It shows similarities to Rzedowski's Pinyon and some other pinyon pines.
