  • Comment: The proposal to... 'conserve Brachycome Cass. (Compositae) to maintain that spelling in preference to the original Brachyscome (proposed by Adolphi et al. Taxon 38: 511, 1989' resulted in a tied vote. Brummit commented then that '..although technically the vote is indecisive and the issue may still be argued, it appears now that the spelling Brachyscome should be preferred'. This is the spelling in main use in Australia at this time.
