Abstract: Kadsura coccinea (Lem.) A. C. Smith is reported as new record to Indonesia, K. induta A. C. Smith as new record to Guizhou of China and K.oblongifolia Merrill as new record to Vietnam, and Fujian and Taiwan of China. The description on carpels and fruit of K. induta is amended. As the holotype of K. hainanensis Merrill and that of K. oblongifolia have been found to be well preserved at PNH, their lectotypes should be superseded.

Key words: Kadsura Juss., Kadsura coccinea (Lem.) A. C. Smith, Kadsura induta A. C. Smith, Kadsura oblongifolia Merrill, new record.
