  • Type: Leichhardtia australis R.Br.
  • Comment: The main entry for the genus name in Brown's work uses the spelling "Leichardtia", but the entry for the single species is given as Leichhardtia australis. As the genus name is presumed to honour Ludwig Leichhardt (1813–?), the latter spelling is adopted here.
