Abstract: The taxonomic status of two long recognized endemic Chinese species of the genus Bauhinia is clarified as part of our endeavor to prepare the manuscript of Caesalpinioideae for Flora of China. Bauhinia claviflora L. Chen and B. dioscoreifolia L. Chen are reduced to synonymy of B. nervosa (Wall. ex Benth.) Baker and B. khasiana Baker respectively.

Key words: Bauhinia, Bauhinia claviflora, Bauhinia dioscoreifolia, new synonymy, nomenclature.
