4. Hippophaë litangensis Y. S. Lian & Xue L. Chen ex Swenson & Bartish, Syst. Bot. 27: 52. 2002.

理塘沙棘 li tang sha ji

Shrubs or small trees. Young shoots hairy; lateral spines unbranched. Leaves alternate; leaf blade linear, abaxially hairy, white scaly, margin revolute. Fruit yellow or red, cylindric, with 5-7 small ridges, 6-8 mm. Seed straight, longitudinally ridged.

● Hillsides; ca. 3700 m. Sichuan (Litang).

Molecular data support the suggestion by Lian et al. (Proceedings of International Workshop on Seabuckthorn, 60-66. 1995) that this taxon might have originated from hybridization between Hippophae neurocarpa subsp. stellatopilosa and H. rhamnoides subsp. yunnanensis.
