Removal of the informal name Epiblema grandiflorum var. cyaneum ms from the Census of Western Australian Plants
While conservation of unusual variants of any plant species is desirable, taxonomic recognition of such variants is not warranted unless evidence is available that they represent genetically distinct evolutionary lineages. Geographically restricted variants such as E. grandiflorum var. cyaneum ms are no more likely to warrant taxonomic recognition than widespread and common variants. Removal of Epiblema grandiflorum var. cyaneum ms from the Census of Western Australian Plants is recommended.
