A new subspecies of Lambertia echinata (Proteaceae)

During the field work for a floristic survey of the Swan Coastal Plain (Gibson et al. 1994) a series of areas of unusual plant communities on shallow soils over sheet ironstone were documented. A number of plant taxa found in these areas, including Lambertia echinata R. Br., have been reduced to a single or very few populations with critically low numbers of individuals.
