A revision of Byblis (Byblidaceae) in south-western Australia

The south-western Australian populations of Byblis (Byblidaceae) are revised. A new species, B. lamellata Conran & Lowrie, is recognised on habit, ecology and seed morphology and named for the populations between Arrowsmith River and Cataby. Byblis gigantea Lindl. and its synonym B. lindleyana Planch. are lectotypified. A generic description and a table of distinguishing features for all species is given. A key and distribution map are provided for the two species from the south-west of Western Australia.
