  • (n): the Chinese swamp cypress, Glyptostrobus pensilis, a monotypic species of deciduous gymnosperm. Glyptostrobus fossil remains are known from sediments in North America and elsewhere in the Northern Hemisphere. The present relictual distribution of the species in China and southern Viet Nam is the result of tectonism, climate change and broad regional extirpations.
