The Lawrencella complex (Asteraceae : Gnaphalieae : Angianthinae) of Australia

The Lawrencella complex includes the monotypic genera Bellida and Schoenia, several species included by Bentham in Helichrysum sect. Lawrencella, and one species previously placed in both Helichrysum and Podolepis. It is considered to be a natural group clearly distinct from other members of the Angianthinae. Three genera are here recognised: Bellida, Lawrencella, and Schoenia. One subspecies is described as new; four new species combinations are made.
