New taxa and a new infrageneric classification in Dryandra R.Br. (Proteaceae : Grevilleoideae)

In preparation for an account in Volume 17 of the "Flora of Australia", new taxa (10 series, 29 species, 24 subspecies, 10 varieties) and a new infrageneric classification are presented. Twelve new combinations are made. A number of previously-published names are lecto- or neotypified. The work is based on classical taxonomic methods. The genus now consists of three subgenera, 24 series, 92 species and 36 infrageneric taxa. Keys to all taxa are given. The conservation status is given for each taxon treated; some are very restricted and two almost extinct in the wild.
