A new species of Monotoca (Ericaceae: Styphelioideae: Styphelieae) from the south coast of Western Australia

A new species, Monotoca aristata A.R. Chapman from the west of Fitzgerald River National Park is described and illustrated. It is distinguished from all other Monotoca species by the thick, aristate, linear-lanceolate leaves, with conspicuous veins on the abaxial surface. It is now the only representative of this genus in Western Australia.
