  • R.O.Belcher, Austral. Syst. Bot. 7: 75-76 (1994) lists "Senecio rupicola (A.Rich.) DC." in synonymy of Senecio rupicola A. Rich. Although material cited by de Candolle (Prodr. 6: 372 (1838)) comprises more than one taxon, this is regarded here as a secondary reference rather than publication of a new name. Similarly, L.Rodway, Tasman. Fl. 93 (1903) lists "var. pleiocephalus" under his treatment of S. pectinatus. R.O.Belcher, Muelleria 9: 127 (1996) treated this as a new name, but it is here regarded as a secondary reference to Senecio pectinatus var. pleiocephalus Benth. Belcher's name, Senecio pinnatifolius var. pleiocephalus, is therefore invalid (lacking a Latin diagnosis: ICBN Art. 36.1 (2006)).
