Stypandra jamesii (Phormiaceae), a new Western Australian species endemic to granite outcrops

The new species of triggerplant (Stylidiaceae) described here is endemic to the Northern Territory. It belongs in Stylidium subgenus Andersonia (R. Br.) Mildbr., which is characterized by having a linear hypanthium, the walls of the mature capsule recurved, the septum erect and persistent, and numerous seeds. This subgenus occurs in regions of tropical northern Australia and extends into south-east Asia (Mildbraed 1908).
