Ptilotus luteolus, a new combination in Ptilotus (Amaranthaceae)
Benl has been the most prominent recent author on the genus Ptilotus R.Br., and described a number of infraspecific taxa from a small amount of material. Many new collections have now been made and it has become apparent that the ranking of these taxa is in need of review. After infraspecific taxa in Ptilotus astrolasius F.Muell. were examined it became apparent that Ptilotus astrolasius var. luteolus Benl & H.Eichler warrants the rank of species.
