‘Xueshandanggui’ is a traditional medicinal plant of the Naxi minority people of Lijiang prefecture, northwestern Yunnan. However, this Chinese name has often been confused with other Apiaceae species. In this study, the descriptions of ‘Xueshandanggui’ are clarified and the taxonomic confusion of related species is discussed. The results showed that the traditional Naxi medicinal plant ‘Xueshandanggui’ was Pleurospermum aromaticum WW. Sm., but the plant described as ‘Xueshandanggui’ in Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae is actually Angelica forrestii Diels. The latter was not the plant that the Naxi refer to as ‘Xueshandanggui’. Other related studies have shown that Aforrestii was a mistreatment, and this has now been combined with Pleurospermum angelicoides (Wall.) Benth. ex CB. Clarke.
