New species and notes on central Australian Goodenia (Goodeniaceae)

Goodenia halophila Albr. sp. nov. and G. cylindrocarpa Albr. sp. nov. are described, with notes on their distribution, conservation status, habitat and relationships with other species of Goodenia Sm. Notes are also provided on the Northern Territory populations of G. angustifolia Carolin and G. glandulosa K.Krause, and on all populations of G. anfracta J.M.Black and G. maideniana W.Fitzg. Further studies are needed to establish whether G. anfracta, which currently has conservation priority in Western Australia, should be reduced to synonymy under G. maideniana.
