  • Type: "... Mr. ALLAN CUNNINGHAM, who found it in New Holland, on the sea-shore at the Illawana district, in lat. 34½°, whence living plants were imported to His Majesty's Gardens at Kew."
  • Comment: Since both the taxon name and Latin description are attributed to "Allan Cunningham" within an article by Hooker, authorship of the name is thus here accepted as ascribed (ICN Art. 46.2 (Shenzhen Code, 2018)).
