Because of the areas of production and the varieties, the commercial names of herb can be confusing. For  example herbs from similar plants can have different names; and herbs of different plants can have the same names.

 

Differentiating the varieties and the confusion::

  1. Curcuma longa L﹐ (jiang huang 薑黃); also called Curcuma domestica Val.

  2. Curcuma kwangsinensis S.G. Lee et C.F. Ling L. (Guangxi e zhu 廣西莪, 桂鬱金 )

  3.  Curcuma aromatica Salisb. (yu jin 鬱金 )

  4. Curcuma zedoaria (berg) Rosc. (e zhu 莪朮 )

  5. Curcuma wenyujin Y. H. Chen et C. Ling (温鬱金)

  6. Curcuma phaeocaulis Val. (蓬莪朮, 綠絲鬱金)

  7. Curcuma xanthorrhiza  Roxb. (束骨姜黄)

He yu jin (black yu jin) is also called: wen yu jin, wen yi jin, or chuan yu jin and is produced in the district of Wen Zhou of Zhejiang province. Chuan in this case does not mean Sichuan province but it means river. Wen does not mean warm or mild. It means the district Wen Zhou.

Guang yu jin does not mean it is produced in Guangdong. Guang (廣) in this case means "broad. It is mainly produced in Sichuan. It is the root of Curcuma longa  It is also called "huang si yu" (huang si means yellow silk) and "jiang huang".

E zhu (Curcuma zedoaria Boscoc.) dry herb is usually in thicker slices and grey in color.

Yu jin dry herb is usually thinner and in smaller slices than e zhu and translucent and much paler than jiang huang (turmeric).

Shu gu jiang huang (Curcuma xanthorrhiza  Roxb.) is lighter in color compared to jiang huang (turmeric) and the roots are more than 10 times larger than jiang huang. It is also called da jiang huang, meaning large jiang huang.
