Gamblea longipes Merrill and Pentapanax trifoliatus K.-M. Feng are the same taxon, and are properly placed in Aralia L. sect. Pentapanax (Seem.) J. Wen. Because the name Aralia longipes is already occupied, a nomen novum, Aralia kingdon-wardii, is proposed. The taxon occurs in Bhutan, NE India, N Myanmar (Burma) and western China (Xizang and Yunnan), and appears to be most closely related to A. fragrans (D. Don) Jebb & J. Wen.
