长叶榧树 chang ye fei shu [Chinese].
Lectotypified by Lin Qi and Cao Ziyu (2007).
See Fu et al. (1999) for detailed description and a good line drawing. This species is peculiar in bearing a close resemblance, not to other species of Torreya, but to Cephalotaxus fortunei; however this species has sessile fruits and a strongly twisted leaf arrangement.
Both wood and leaves are very fragrant. The wood is used to make agricultural implements, utensils, and handicrafts (Fu et al. 1999).
