Pultenaea rariflora

Pultenaea rariflora de Kok

Kok, R.P.J. de & West, J.G. (2004) A revision of the genus Pultenaea (Fabaceae) 3. The eastern species with recurved leaves. Australian Systematic Botany 17(3): 310, Figs 15 (map), 16
TYPE:   Wide Bay district, Near Nikenbah, in damp places in open forest, 5 June 1932, Blake s.n. (holo-, BRI).
DISTRIBUTION:   Queensland
STATUS:   "To recognise this taxon at species level we needed to propose a different name. The name Pultenaea pauciflora M.B.Scott was already occupied by a rare and endangered Western Australian species (Scott 1914). In proposing the name rariflora, we tried to maintain the sense of the name originally proposed by White (1939)."
