HAWKESWOOD, T.J. AND MOLLEMANS, F.H.

A new 5-merous species of Calothamnus, C. superbus Hawkeswood & Mollemans, is described from sandplains in the Pigeon Rocks area, south-west Western Australia. Its affinities with the closely related species, C. aridus T.J. Hawkeswood, are outlined, and ecological data provided. The plant is not represented in any National Parks or Nature Reserves but its survival is probably ensured due to its isolated location.
