Abstract: In order to validate the name Kobresia inflata P.C.Li, the herbarium is indicated in which the holotype of the name is conserved.Though the species often possesses spicate inflorescence and unisexual spikelets, and has been placed in Sect.Hemicarex, it has no close affinity with any taxon of the section.The species is closely related to K.loliacea Wang et Tang ex P.C.Li and K.gammiei C.B.Clarke.Therefore, K.inflata should belong to Subgen.Compositae.

Key words: Kobresia inflata, validation, affinity
