The four new species of Camellia L. (Theaceae) include: C. duyana Orel, Curry & Luu, C. ligustrina Orel, Curry & Luu, C. bugiamapensis Orel, Curry, Luu & Q. D. Nguyen, and C. capitata Orel, Curry & Luu.

They were collected from the Da Lat Plateau and the Lang Biang Massif phytogeographic region in southern Vietnam.

The new finds are morphologically dissimilar to known Camellia species.

These species are endemic to the mountain temperate climate and to the lowland tropical rainforests of Vietnam.

Globally, about 80% of the camellia species in the genus Camellia L. are found in China and most of the remaining species are distributed in the geographic region of Vietnam.
