Luliang County (simplified Chinese: 陆良县; traditional Chinese: 陸良縣; pinyin: Lùliáng Xiàn) is a county under the administration of the prefecture-level city of Qujing, in Yunnan province of southwestern China.

Flora and fauna

The type locality of Sinocyclocheilus lateristriatus, a cyprinid fish endemic to China, is in Luliang County.[1] Similarly, Schuchertella luliangensis, a Permian brachiopod, has been described from the Kuangshan Formation in Luliang County (and named after the county).[2]

In media

The county has obtained questionable visibility in international headlines after it emerged that the county government had presented data exaggerating the economic performance of the county.[3]
