Abstract

During preparation of the account of Zingiberaceae for the Flora of China, volume 24, it was noticed that four species are illegitimately named, being later homonyms: Amomum thyrsoideum Gagnepain (1903), not Ruiz and Pavón (1798), A. aurantiacum H. T. Tsai & S. W. Zhao (1979), not Ridley (1920), Hedychium carneum Y. Y. Qian (1994), not Loddiges (1823), and Zingiber truncatum S. Q. Tong (1987), not Stokes (1812). Therefore, the following new names (nomina nova) are proposed here, respectively: A. gagnepainii T. L. Wu, K. Larsen & Turland, A. neoaurantiacum T. L. Wu, K. Larsen & Turland, H. neocarneum T. L. Wu, K. Larsen & Turland, and Z. neotruncatum T. L. Wu, K. Larsen & Turland.
