Three new combinations, Astartea affinis (Endl.) Rye, A. arbuscula (Benth.) Rye and A. astarteoides (Benth.) Rye, are made for species that were initially described in the genus Baeckea L. Lectotypes are selected for two of the base names, Baeckea affinis Endl. (including its synonym Astartea endlicheriana Schauer nom. illeg.) and B. astarteoides Benth., and also for Astartea laricifolia Schauer.
