Abstract: Horsfieldia pandurifolia Hu was discovered in 1963. There have been many controversial opinions about its taxonomic position. The taxonomic position of H.pandurifolia was studied based on plant morphology, chemical taxonomy and DNA molecular marking from 11 wild species of Myristicaceae in China. H.pandurifolia was in accordance with H.macrocoma ssp. prainii, and was distinguished from Horsfieldia, Knema and Myristica obviously. These evidences supported that H.pandurifolia was reduced to H.macrocoma ssp. prainii effectively and the genus Endocomia was established with the type species H.macrocoma. We suggested that Endocomia macrocoma(Miq.) de Wilde ssp. prainii(King) de Wilde takes place of the sciential name H.pandurifolia Hu.
