Bauhinia emarginata Roxb. ex G. Don (1832), non Mill. (1768), nec Jack (1822) has been found to be conspecific with B. retusa Roxb. (1832), non Poir. (1811). So B. roxburghiana Voigt (1845) (≡ B. emarginata Roxb. ex G. Don), the first available name for this Old World species of Bauhinia, is reinstated here, setting aside B. semla Wunderlin (1976) (≡ B. retusa Roxb.), which is also found to be an illegitimate name.
