The highly variable species Calothamnus quadrifidus R.Br. is discussed and an infraspecific classification with eight subspecies is proposed. The following new taxa are described: Calothamnus quadrifidus subsp. petraeus A.S.George & N.Gibson, C. quadrifidus subsp. seminudus A.S.George & N.Gibson and C. quadrifidus subsp. teretifolius A.S.George & N.Gibson. New combinations are C. quadrifidus subsp. angustifolius (Ewart) A.S.George & N.Gibson, C. quadrifidus subsp. asper (Turcz.) A.S.George & N.Gibson and C. quadrifidus subsp. homalophyllus (F.Muell.) A.S.George & N.Gibson, and a new status is given for C. quadrifidus subsp. obtusus (Benth.) A.S.George & N.Gibson. © Department of Environment and Conservation.

The following new taxa are described: Calothamnus arcuatus A.S.George, C. borealis subsp. cinereus A.S.George, C. cupularis A.S.George, C. montanus A.S.George, C. phellosus A.S.George (the species previously known as C. oldfieldii), C. roseus A.S.George and C. scabridus A.S.George. Calothamnus blepharospermus var. glaber Benth. is raised to specific rank. The name Calothamnus lateralis f. crassus Benth. (C. crassus (Benth.) Hawkeswood) is shown to have been misapplied by Hawkeswood and is given varietal rank under C. lateralis. Calothamnus blepharantherus (a synonym of C. sanguineus Labill.), C. blepharospermus F.Muell. and C. chrysanthereus F.Muell. are lectotypified. Calothamnus oldfieldii F.Muell. is also lectotypified and the name correctly applied, with C. kalbarriensis Hawkeswood reduced to synonymy. © Department of Environment and Conservation.


Fourteen collections representing type or possible type material of Australian plants, housed in the Economic Botany Collection at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, are documented and illustrated. They appear to have been overlooked by taxonomists. One, Hicksbeachia pinnatifolia F.Muell., may be all that remains of the type material. The others are: Adansonia gregorii F.Muell., Casuarina decaisneana F.Muell., Eucalyptus dichromophloia F.Muell., Eucalyptus megacarpa F.Muell., Eucalyptus ptychocarpa F.Muell., Helicia sayeriana F.Muell., Kentia belmoreana C.Moore & F.Muell., Kentia canterburyana C.Moore & F.Muell., Kentia mooreana F.Muell., Livistona alfredii F.Muell., Musa banksii F.Muell., Paederota densifolia F.Muell., Pandanus forsteri C.Moore & F.Muell.
