Four new combinations in Malva, M. assurgentiflora, M. lindsayi, M. occidentalis, and M. wigandii, and five replacement names, M. autraliana, M. canariensis, M. dendromorpha, M. linnaei, and M. pacifica, are proposed to accommodate species of Lavatera that are more closely related to the type species of Malva than they are to the type species of Lavatera. These species are in the "Malvoid group," discussed by Ray in an earlier paper. One other Lavatera species that should also be placed in Malva is discussed but not formally transferred. Some lectotypes and neotypes are designated.
