[Herbalogical textual research on huci].

Abstract

According to textual research, the "Huci" was first recorded in ancient document, Zhenglei Bencao, not "Funiu Hua" recorded in Kaibao Bencao. Therefore, in Li Shizhen's works, Compendium of Materia Medica, incorporating "Huci" into an item of "Funiu Hua" is incorrect. The original plan of "Huci" is Damnacanthus indicus Gaertn. f. from Rubiaceae.
