Novel species of Hypocalymma, Amanita and Pterostylis are among the research published this week by the Western Australian Herbarium. There is also a summary of recent updates to Western Australia’s vascular plant census, and lectotypifications in Astartea that have made as part of a recently published Flora of Australia treatment of the genus.
This year’s cover features a native bee (Leioproctus sp.) foraging on Coast Beard-heath (Leucopogon parviflorus) near Albany. A simply delightful capture by former DBCA employee Kate Brown, who is enjoying making insightful observations on plant-insect interactions in her retirement.
We are also pleased to announce that every single paper that has been published in Nuytsia now has a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
