BaLanophora japonica Makino. is reported as a newly recorded species in Guizhou Province, it was found in Zhujiashan National Forest Park of Guizhou in Weng’an Xian in Guizhou Province. its main biological characteristics were dissected and observed, and its rDNA-ITS sequences was amplified and sequenced directionally. The blasting of the sequence with Balanophora japonica voucher rDNA-ITS showed that there were 100% (671/671) similar between the species and B.japonica Makino. combined with its morphology, the species was finally identified as B. japonica Makino. which is reported for the first time in Guizhou province. This discovery provides a basis for further research and protection of the biodiversity in the region.
