New to Nuytsia


Descriptions and illustrations of three new epacrids, an orchid, and several Calytrix and Hypocalymma species were published in five papers today. Nine of the eleven new species are conservation listed, including a Threatened species aptly named the Superb Myrtle (H. magnificum), with beautiful flowers that are the largest in the genus.
