Leionema lamprophyllum subsp. fractum (Rutaceae); a new and highly restricted taxon from the Hunter Valley of New South Wales

Stephen A.J. Bell, Neville G. Walsh


A new subspecies of Leionema lamprophyllum, formerly included in L. lamprophyllum subsp. obovatum F.M.Anderson, is here described as new. Currently known from fewer than 50 individuals, the new subsp. is highly restricted and warrants a conservation risk code of at least Endangered. An illustration of the new taxon, notes on its distribution and habitat, and a key to all four subspecies of L. lamprophyllum are also provided.
