Abstract: In the present paper the longstanding confusion of three uncertain species of Chloranthus, C. monostachys R. Br., C. pernyanus Solms-Laub. and C. kiangsiensis Metcalf is clarified. In addition to the new record of C. nervosus Coll. et Hemsl. to the flora of China, the distributional ranges of Sarcandra hainanensis (Pei) Swamy et Bailey and Hedyosmum orientale Merr. et Chun are also found to be much bigger than previously known.

Key words: Chloranthus monostachys, C.pernyanus, C.Kiangsiensis, C.nervosus, Sarcandra hainanensis, Hedyosmum orientale
