Actinidia chinensis P1. var. hispida C.F. Liang has been previously described under the name A. chinensis PL var. deliciosa A. Chevalier. This name must therefore take precedence. A comparison of the two varieties indicates that the differences are sufficient to justify separating the variety deliciosa as a new species, A. deliciosa (A. Chev.) C.F.Liang et A.R.Ferguson.
