Banksia recurvistylis (Proteaceae), a new species from Western Australia

Banksia recurvistylis K.R.Thiele is described to accommodate anomalous populations previously referred to B. meganotia (A.S.George) A.R.Mast & K.R.Thiele. The new species differs from B. meganotia in its habit and flower and leaf dimensions, and is geographically disjunct. Both B. meganotia and B. recurvistylis have relatively restricted distributions and are of conservation significance.
