The genus Actinidia Lindl. was traditionally divided into four sections, Actinidia sect. Strigosae H.L. Li, Actinidia sect. Maculatae Dunn, Actinidia sect. Leiocarpae Dunn, and Actinidia sect. Stellatae H.L. Li. However, A. sect. Maculatae was not published validly, and A. sect. Leiocarpae and A. sect. Stellatae lack types. In the present paper, the autonym, Actinidia sect. Actinidia, is proposed to replace A. sect. Maculatae, and A. sect. Vestitae to replace A. sect. Stellatae. Lectotypes are designated for A. sect. Vestitae and A. sect. Leiocarpae.
