A revision of Hibbertia depressa and its allies (Dilleniaceae) from Western Australia

A small group of closely related taxa, which form part of section Candollea Gilg. in the genus Hibbertia Andr., are revised. Descriptions, illustrations and distribution maps are presented along with a key, including two new taxa, Hibbertia fitzgeraldensis J.R. Wheeler and Hibbertia priceana J.R. Wheeler. Both new species are restricted in distribution and Hibbertia priceana appears to be at risk. The lectotypification of Hibbertia desmophylla (Benth.) F. Muell. is also made.
