Abstract: In this paper, the status of Clematis eriopoda Maxim. and sect. Atragenopsis Boiss. is discussed, and the species status of the former and the sectional status of the latter are recognized; two species (C. wenxianensis W. T. Wang, C. malacoclada W. T. Wang) and one variety (C. hastata Finet & Gagnep. var. micrantha W. T. Wang) are described as new; one species, C. tubulosa Turcz., which has been erroneously relegated into the synonymy under C. heracleifolia DC. by Fang and Wang for a long time, is reinstated; C. heracleifolia var. ichangensis Rehd. & Wils. is transferred to C. tubulosa, and a new combination, C. tubulosa var. ichangensis (Rehd. & Wils.) W. T. Wang, is made; the fruit description of C. glabrifolia K. Sun & M. S. Yan is given for the first time.

Key words: Clematis, new taxa, taxonomic status, Clematis eriopoda, sect. Atragenopsis, reinstatement, Clematis tubulosa, new combination, Clematis heracleifolia var. ichangensis, fruit description, Clematis glabrifolia
