Range DescriptionMagnolia amoena is endemic to southeast China where it occurs in south Anhui, south Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces. This species is found in a restricted area just south of the mouth of the Yangtze River and is not thought to occur anywhere in large numbers, occurring instead in small scattered stands at elevations of 700-1,000 m asl. Scattered individuals have been recorded on the Huanggangshan, Jiangxi/Fujian border, Wuyishan Biosphere Reserve. The area of forest remaining for this species is estimated to be 24,769 km2 but the species is scattered and likely to occur in an area much smaller than this, with an extent of occurrence of less than 20,000 km2.
