  • Type: NEW SOUTH WALES: North Coast: Upper slopes of Mt Warning, K.L. Wilson 8520, 18 Oct 1992; holo NSW; iso BRI, CHR, K, L, NY, P, PRE.
taxonomic synonym: Lepidosperma urophorum f. North Coast form [n/a]
  • Etymology: From the Latin clipeus, a shield or, by transference, an object of that form, and -cola, a dweller, referring to the distribution of this species on the mountain ranges representing remnants of the Mt Warning Shield Volcano. This epithet is to be treated as a noun in apposition, and the ending is therefore invariable.
