Abstract: A new status and a new synonym in the genus Syringa are proposed based on population sampling, examination of herbarium specimens, character analysis and multivariate analysis. Syringa wolfii C. K. Schneid. is here treated as S. villosa ssp. wolfii rather than S. reflexa ssp. wolfii, and its lectotype is designated here. Also designated are the lectotypes of five synonyms: S. bretschneiderii, S. emodi var. rosea, S. villosa var. hirsuta, S. formosissima, and S. robusta.

Key words: Syringa, Syringa villosa ssp. wolfii, new status, new synonymy, typification
