Abstract

Grevillea speckiana Olde is described from a single collection gathered in 1953. Although the specimens bears flowers in early bud, fruits and foliage are sufficient to assign and describe the species. Unlike several other species in the Triloba Group awaiting description from single specimens that represent extinct species, there is some hope for its continued existence because of the botanically unexplored locality in which it was collected.
