Abies ziyuanensis is a species of fir, a conifer in the Pinaceae family. It is only known from four locations in Guangxi and Hunan provinces in China.[1] A. ziyuanensis is related to Abies beshanzuensis, another threatened fir endemic to China.

While the population was in the thousands as recently as the 1970s, there are now thought to be less that 600 trees in existence.[2]
