Abstract: Bambusa pallida Munro, an attractive species found from natural lowland forests of southern districts of Bhutan to W China and newly recorded for Bhutan, is described, illustrated, and lectotypified. The morphological characters by which it can be separated from other species are given. This species can provide useful products and also has potential to be planted as an ornamental horticultural plant in other subtropical regions.
