The long overlooked synonym Lycopodium "minchegense" Ching has one month's priority over Phlegmariurus mingcheensis Ching on which Huperzia mingcheensis (Ching) Holub is based. It is argued that the older binomial has a typesetter's error (misplaced "g") and is correctable to L. mingcheense. A new combination in Huperzia would be a later homonym of Holub's combination. A lectotype is designated for L. mingcheense.
