Recent phylogenetic studies have investigated the tribe Phlomideae and, in particular, the degree of “inclusiveness” of the genus Phlomoides. As a result, Eremostachys, Lamiophlomis, Notochaete and all Chinese Phlomis, excepted for cultivated Pfruticosa, were transferred to the latest redefined Phlomoides. The newly circumscribed Phlomoides is easily distinguished from Phlomis by its herbaceous habit and several other traits. Although the necessary new combinations for the Chinese species have been made elsewhere, unfortunately, eleven names were omitted by previous researchers. Therefore, this paper proposes 11 new nomenclatural combinations in Phlomoides, and provides a checklist and a key to all Chinese Phlomoides.

Key words: Phlomis, Tribe Phlomideae, Phlomoides, Lamiaceae, New combinations
