A new plant species in the Aristolochiaceae family was discovered in Xuan Lien Nature Reserve in central Thanh Hoa province.

The plant was given a scientific name as Aristolochia Xuanlienensis, named after the place it was found. Scientists said this species has so far not been found anywhere else in the world.

Additionally, during their research on biodiversity in the nature reserve, scientists discovered the presence of three species of flora, which have so far not been recorded in Vietnam, including Lindera Megaphylla P.C, Kailarsenia LineatA R.Br, and Didymocarpus Pupureobracteatus Smith.

The discovery of new species contributes to a richer biodiversity in Vietnam and worldwide.-VNA
