Persicaria japonica and its allied species are reclassified recognizing two species. Persicaria odorata is adopted for the correct name for plants hitherto called P. macrantha or P. conspicua in East Asia, the latter two are recognized as subspecies of P. odorata. Persicaria odorata subsp. odorata is reported from South China for the first time. Lectotypes of Polygonum omerostromum, P. pseudojaponicum, P. japonicum var. conspicuum, var. micranthum, var. micranthum f. brevistylum are designated.
