The journal of the Western Australian Herbarium

Nuytsia is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original papers on the systematics, taxonomy and nomenclature of Australian (particularly Western Australian) plants, algae and fungi, especially descriptions of taxa, revisions, identification guides, nomenclatural and taxonomic issues, systematic analyses and classifications, censuses, and information on invasive species.

Nuytsia was founded in 1970 and is named after Nuytsia floribunda (Christmas Tree; Moodjar; Kaanya Tree), an arborescent root hemiparasite endemic to south-west Western Australia that is of cultural significance to Noongar Aborigines. One-fifth of all published native plant names for Western Australia have been formally established in the journal, including over one-quarter of the conservation-listed taxa in the State. Refer to the cumulative index to scientific names published in Nuytsia for details, and to the 50th anniversary edition for a synopsis of the journal’s impact.

Nuytsia papers are published electronically on Florabase by the Western Australian Herbarium and are freely available for download and distribution for bona fide scientific or educational use. The journal is also electronically available via the Biodiversity Heritage Library and DBCA library, and is also archived with the National edeposit database. Written permission to use and/or re-publish images and botanical illustrations must be obtained from the Managing Editor. A hard copy of each volume is no longer produced, and subscriptions no longer taken.

Opinions expressed by authors in articles published in Nuytsia are their own and do not necessarily represent the policies or views of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.

Updates to Western Australia’s vascular plant census for 2023

PARKER, C.M. AND PERCY-BOWER, J.M., Nuytsia 35: 1–11 (2024)

Three new species of Styphelia (Ericaceae: Epacridoideae: Styphelieae) from the central south coast of Western Australia

HISLOP, M., Nuytsia 35: 13–23 (2024)

Two new species in Pterostylis (Orchidaceae) in Western Australia

BROCKMAN, G. AND FRENCH, C.J., Nuytsia 35: 25–29 (2024)

New combinations of Hibbertia (Dilleniaceae) segregated from H. hibbertioides and H. glomerata

HAMMER, T.A. AND THIELE, K.R., Nuytsia 35: 31–45 (2024)

Infraspecific taxa within the southwest Australian species Hibbertia glomerata Benth. and H. hibbertioides (Steud.) J.R.Wheeler are critically re-evaluated. Morphological evidence is presented to recognise H. glomerata subsp. wandoo J.R.Wheeler and H. hibbertioides var. meridionalis J.R.Wheeler at species rank, as H. wandoo (J.R.Wheeler) T.Hammer & K.R.Thiele and H. meridionalis (J.R.Wheeler) T.Hammer & K.R.Thiele respectively. Hibbertia hibbertioides var. pedunculata J.R.Wheeler is reduced to synonymy under H. hibbertioides. The remaining subspecies in H. glomerata are provisionally retained but are marginally distinct.

Corrigendum to: Revision of the connate bract group allied to Goodenia panduriformis (Goodeniaceae), including recognition of three new species

SHEPHERD, K.A. AND LEPSCHI, B.J., Nuytsia 35: 47–47 (2024)

Calandrinia sp. Edel Land (F. Obbens FO 01/17) is a synonym of C. sphaerophylla (Montiaceae)
