Abstract: Dryopteris bissetiana (Baker) C. Chr. is a rather common and well known fern in China. Unfortunately in the Chinese national flora (Flora Reipublicae Popularis Sinicae), it is recorded by an illegitimate name, i.e. Dryopteris setosa (Thunb.) Akasawa. The application of the correct scientific name of this plant is resumed.

Key words: Dryopteris bissetiana (Baker) C. Chr., nomenclature.
