In this paper, a new subspecies of Hippophae (Elaeagnaceae), H. rhamnoides subsp. wolongensis Y. S. Lian, K. Sun & X. L. Chen, from China is described and illustrated. According to an analysis of the distribution and main characters, it is allied to H. rhamnoides subsp. sinensis Rousi but is distinct in having rosulately arranged flower buds, larger, alternate leaves with usually more or less sinuous margins, longer petioles, and longer peduncles, Hippophae rhamnoides subsp. wolongensis is rare and occurs only in Wenchuan and Mao Counties of Sichuan Province, at 1660-1920 m. A key including five subspecies of Hippophae rhamnoides in China is provided.
