Abstract: Based on both herbarium and field observations, Ptilagrostis dichotoma Keng ex Tzvel. and P. junatovii Grub. are reduced to synonymy of P. mongholica (Turcz. ex Trin.) Griseb. and of P. concinna (Hook. f.) Roshev. Respectively, and a new combination, P. roshevitsiana (Tzvel.) L. B. Cai, is proposed.

Key words: Ptilagrostis, taxonomic revision, China.
