Abstract

Oreocnide kwangsiensis Hand.-Mazz. and Boehmeria japonica (L. f.) Miq. (Urticaceae) are newly reported among the flora of Vietnam that are used as green foods for beef cattle by local H'Mong people in northern Vietnam in the winter-spring season. The authors provide descriptions, illustrations, notes on utilisation, and a diagnostic comparison of these species with ones that are morphologically similar.
