The name Brassaiopsis moumingensis was intended as a new combination but is in fact the name of a new species. The protologue indicates the type and includes a direct reference to "Euaraliopsis moumingensis" (Y. R. Ling, Acta Phytotax. Sin. 15(2): 84. 1977), where a Latin description is provided. However, because the genus name "Euaraliopsis" was not validly published (see comment following genus description above), "E. moumingensis" was not validly published either.
