An examination of the Australian genus Xerochrysum (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae)

In this partial revision of Xerochrysum Tzvelev the following taxa are described as new: X. alpinum Paul G.Wilson, X. boreale Paul G.Wilson, X. halmaturorum Paul G.Wilson and X. interiore Paul G.Wilson. Accounts of several published and unpublished species from north-east New South Wales and south-east Queensland that are currently recognised are omitted since these are being studied by other botanists; however, these taxa are included in the key to species provided here. Lectotypes are chosen for Helichrysum bracteatum var. viscosum DC., X. bicolor (Lindl.) R.J.Bayer and X. viscosum (Sieber ex Spreng.) R.J.Bayer.
