Four new conservation-listed species of Synaphea (Proteaceae: Conospermineae) from the Jarrah Forest region of south-west Western Australia
BUTCHER, R.

The new species described here are a diverse assemblage of taxa, united in this paper by their geographical occurrence within the Jarrah Forest region of south-west Western Australia and a pressing need to formalise the description of conservation taxa in this State. The taxa have complex taxonomic associations within the groups to which they belong, with intergradation in many characters evident between species. The new species described herein are S. diabolica R.Butcher, S. pandurata R.Butcher, S. polypodioides R.Butcher and S. trinacriformis R.Butcher. A distribution map, image and discussion of affinities are provided for each taxon.
