Note.

No specimen was mentioned in the type description. Champion 325 (K) is the only Champion specimen of Altingia   found by us so far. It bears a label with a handwritten identification Liquidambar   sp. nov. by Champion (based on comparison with other holotype material described by Champion at K). This specimen is thus designated as the lectotype for Liquidambar chinensis   Champ.
