● SE Yunnan.

This species is known only from the type specimen collected at Mile in SE Yunnan.

Although winged petioles and distinctly angled young branches are also observed in Campylotropis trigonoclada and C. henryi, this species is easily recognized by the quadrangular branches and lack of glandular hairs in the inflorescences.
