Notes. Yong et al. (1985), in Flora Sinicae 74: 77. 1985, have used the name D. auriculata (Thunb.) Druce, based on Thunberg's Ethula auriculata. But Hippia integrifolia L.f. (1781) has priority over E. auriculata Thunb. (1784). As types of these taxa are not available it is preferred to adopt D. integrifolia.
