Some names in Chinese Saussurea DC. (Asteraceae, Cardueae) are reviewed. Saussurea tunglingensis F. H. Chen is accepted as the taxonomically correct name, having priority over S. sclerolepis Nakai & Kitagawa. Saussurea haoi Y. Ling ex Y. L. Chen & S. Yun Liang shares the same type with S. bella Y. Ling, so S. haoi is an illegitimate name. Saussurea hopeiensis F. H. Chen described from Hopei [Hebei] is subsumed as a synonym of the more widely distributed S. mongolica (Franchet) Franchet. Saussurea chowana F. H. Chen known only from its type locality in Hopei [Hebei] is treated as a synonym of the broadly distributed S. parviflora (Poiret) DC. Saussurea lanatocephala F. H. Chen known only from Jilin is synonymized to S. triangulata Trautvetter & C. A. Meyer. The names S. nematolepis Y. Ling and S. cochleariifolia Y. L. Chen & S. Yun Liang are lectotypified.
