A taxonomic revision of Actinidiaceae of Vietnam
Taxonomic study of morphological variability using multivariate analysis, together with field studies and literature review clarified the status of a number of paired species of Saurauia and Actinidia of Vietnam and resolved their correct nomenclature: Saurauia tristyla is different from S. roxburghii; Saurauia petelotii is not a synonym of S. fasciculata but is a separate species; Actinidia tonkinensisis a synonym of A. latifolia; Actinidia indochinensis is a distinct species, not a variety of A. callosa; Saurauia dillenioides is a synonym of S. armata; and Saurauia griffithii var. annamica is a synonym of S. napaulensis. Four taxa of Actinidia are newly recorded for Vietnam. The results of this study will allow us to better understand the conservation status of species of Actinidiaceae in Vietnam.
