While preparing a revision of Parasenecio W.W. Sm. & J. Small (Compositae) from China, we found that "Parasenecio morrisonensis Y.L. Chen" was not a validly published name because it was wrongly regarded as a replacement name (nomen novum), and thus no Latin diagnosis was given and no type was indicated, whereas it was actually the name of a new taxon that had been previously misidentified as Cacalia monantha auct. non (Diels) Hayata (cf Art. 33 Note 2 of the ICBN). Parasenecio morrisonensis is validly published here by giving a Latin diagnosis and designating a holotype.
