Haloragis milesiae (Haloragaceae), a new species from the Australian Alps

Peter G Wilson, Robert O Makinson

Abstract


A reassessment of specimens of Haloragis exalata subsp. exalata from near Geehi, in Kosciuszko National Park, revealed that they were consistently different from typical examples of that taxon in stem, leaf and indumentum characters. It is here concluded that this population merits recognition at specific rank, a conclusion that is strongly supported by preliminary DNA sequence analysis. The species is named Haloragis milesiae in honour of the discoverer of the population.
