At least 41 names of Chinese seed plants from 17 families were not validly published in their original publications because the type was not indicated in accordance with one or more of the requirements of Art. 37. They are validated in A Catalogue of Type Specimens (Cormophyta) in the Herbaria of China and its two supplements edited by Shu-Ying Jin and Yi-Lin Chen (1994, 1999, 2007). However, most of botanists were presumably unaware of these validations. As it is necessary to know this information when using these names in subsequent publications, the correct citation of the 41 names is provided here.
