A re-assessment of additional material in the Kunzea preissiana Schauer and K. similis Toelken complexes resulted in two new species and a subspecies being described: K. acicularis Toelken & G.F.Craig, K. strigosa Toelken & G.F.Craig and K. similis subsp. mediterranea Toelken & G.F.Craig. A revised key to Kunzea Rchb. subsect. Floridae Toelken, a table of characters for critical species in the K. preissiana complex, and detailed discussions are provided.
