The genus Ondinea (Nymphaeaceae) including a new subspecies from the Kimberley region, Western Australia
KENNEALLY, K.F. AND SCHNEIDER, EDWARD L.
A new subspecies, Ondinea purpurea Hartog subsp. petaloidea is described and illustrated. The occurrence of previously unreported petaloid flowers in the genus and the discovery of seedlings necessitates expanding the species description. The gradation from sepals to petals to petaloid stamens to conventional stamens provides additional morphological data to support the placement of Ondinea in the Nymphaeaceae sensu stricto.
