Abstract:

 The inflorescence of Elatostema is not only one of the key characters helpful to understand the evolutionary trend in various infrageneric taxa, but also plays important role in the delimitation of its sections and series. In this paper, based on careful examinations of inflorescences from several voucher specimens including type and literatures, the description of inflorescences of three species in this genus was presented.

Key words: Elatostema, Inflorescences, Supplementary description
