36 species and 4 varieties belonging to 15 genera of the family Bora-ginaceae are identified from the plant collections made by the late Dr. H.Smith from China during the twenties and thirties of this century. Onespecies of the genus Trigonotis is described as new. However, as a matterof fact, in these collections should be included more new species of thefamily Boraginaceae, i. e. Microula rockii Johnst., Onosma mertensioidesJohnst., O. adenopus Johnst., and Trigonolis floribunda Johnst. described byI.M. Johnston in 1928 and afterwards, Lappula shanhsiensis Kitag. describedby M. Kitagawa in the sixties, and Microula pseudotrichocarpa W. T. Wang,M. turbinata W. T. Wang, M. floribunda W. T. Wang, Trigonotis longipesW. T. Wang, and T. corispermoides C. J. Wang described by me and byWang Ching-jui respectively in the eighties. Because no timely identi-fication has been given to the boraginaceous specimens of H. Smith'scollections, the publication of these ten species was more or less greatlydelayed and was based on specimens collected by other collectors, otherthan by H. Smith.
