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).
The species account at Threatened Conifers of the World.
