Andrew Edward Orme, Marco Duretto


Asterolasia beckersii Orme & Duretto (Rutaceae) is newly described. The species is restricted to the Nundle area (Tamworth district) on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales. The species is related to A. correifolia (A.Juss.) Benth. and A. hexapetala (A.Juss.) Druce and can be distinguished from these by leaf, inflorescence and floral characters. The ecology and conservation status of A. beckersii are discussed and a key to Asterolasia for eastern Australia is provided.
