Abstract

Re-examination of the type material of Clerodendrum chlorisepalum Merr. ex Moldenke, and additional, previously cited collections from Thailand and Vietnam, has necessitated a clarifi cation of the identity and rarity of the species. This is due to confusion with the much more common plant C. nutansWall. ex Jack. Clerodendrum chlorisepalum has been assessed as Vulnerable (VU B1ab(iii)+D) using the IUCN Red List categories due to redetermination of specimens and reappraisal of its distribution. Clerodendrum chlorisepalum is endemic in Vietnam and, therefore, hereby excluded from the Flora of Thailand. The Thai specimens are C. nutans.
