 Based on fieldwork and specimen examination,Gastrochilus fuscopuntuatus and Oberonia pumila were treated as synonyms of Gastrochilus pseudodistichus and Oberonia insularis respectively. Gastrochilus somai was recognized as a distinct species, differing from Gastrochilus japonicus by the larger plant, subumbellate inflorescence, and slippershaped hypochile. Four species, Bulbophyllum gyrochilum, Dendrobium praecintum, Peristylus superanthus and Sunipia angustipetala, are represented as new records from China.
