Taxonomy of the Calytrix ecalycata complex (Myrtaceae)

The part of the genus Calytrix Labill. that was formerly regarded as the monotypic genus Calythropsis C.A. Gardner is shown to be composed of two allopatric species, Calytrix ecalycata Craven and C. pimeleoides C.A. Gardner ex Keighery. The former species is comprised of three geographically separated subspecies, C. ecalycata subsp. ecalycata, C. ecalycata subsp. brevis Keighery and C. ecalycata subsp. pubescens Keighery.
