The taxonomic treatment of Arisaema (Araceae) in China in volume 23 of the Flora of China (FOC) in 2010 recognized 78 species in 12 sections. The circumscription of the sections was revised by Murata in 2011 and the names of the sections were reviewed more recently by Murata et al. in 2013. In the FOC the circumscription of some species was changed drastically and four new species were described. Notes on the treatment in the FOC are given, based on recent cytological and molecular data, according to the sections recognized by Murata et al. in 2013.
