Based on literatures of alien invasive plants in China, the scientific names of sixteen species are revised, since their records in the Chinese literatures are confused: the same species with different scientic names were used by different authors in different regions and in different times, even different species with similar Chinese names were treated as identical. The data from floras updated were emplyed to compile the scientific name of each species, along with vernacular name, synonym, their origin and distribution both in China and abroad.

Key words: China, Alien, Invasive plants, Nomenclatural notes
