Two new species of Comesperma (Polygalaceae) from Western Australia

Two new species of Comesperma Labill. from the south-west of Western Australia, C. calcicola Keighery and C. griffinii Keighery, are described and illustrated. Both species are regarded as poorly collected and in need of further survey to determine their conservation status. The great diversity of life forms found in south-western members of the genus is outlined.
