A taxonomic account of the palm genus Livistona is presented. Thirtysix species are recognised. Taxonomic and nomenclatural changes are applied to a number of species. Livistona rotundifolia (Lam.) Mart. is treated as a highly variable species, with L. rotundifolia var. luzonensis Becc., L. rotundifolia var. microcarpa (Becc.) Becc., L. rotundifolia var. mindorensis (Becc.) Becc. and L. robinsoniana Becc. placed as synonyms; L. fengkaiensis X.W.Wei & M.Y.Xiao is placed under L. speciosa Kurz; Livistona chinensis var. subglobosa (Hassk.) Becc. is placed under L. chinensis (Jacq.) R.Br. ex Mart.; Livistona tonkinensis Magalon is placed under L. saribus (Lour.) Merr. ex A.Chev.; and Livistona kimberleyana A.N.Rodd is placed under L. lorophylla Becc. A neotype is proposed for L. saribus, and lectotypes are chosen for L. altissima Zoll., L. beccariana Burret, L. hoogendorpii Hort. ex Teysm. & Binn. ex Miq., L. olivaeformis (Hassk.) Mart., L. subglobosa (Hassk.) Mart., L. tonkinensis Magalon, L. woodfordii Ridl., and Chamaerops biroo Siebold.
