The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature.

Showing Senecio lautus var. pilosus
Type: "Franklin Island (Great Bight); coll. T.G.B. Osborn"
APC Comment: A name of uncertain application.
Text: "This specimen has a relatviely dense cover of coarse hairs. It is perhaps closest to S. spanomerus but the achenes have shorter, more closely-appressed papillose hairs that is typical of this species. If further collections and field observation show that it forms populations that are consistent morphologically in terms of the indumentum, it will possibly deserve taxonomic recognition."
