Larix kongboensis, a new species from southeastern Xizang (China) near its borders with Arunachal Pradesh (India), is described. Previously misidentified as L. mastersiana, its affinities with that Sichuan endemic and with L. griffithii (eastern Himalaya) and L. speciosa (Yunnan, Myanmar) are discussed. Within L. potaninii Batalin, variety australis A. Henry ex Handel-Mazzetti has been found to be an earlier name for variety macrocarpa Y. W. Law. The nomenclature of the "Sikkim Larch" is discussed, and it is concluded that Larix griffithii J. D. Hooker, not L. griffithiana Carrière, is the correct name for this species.
