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.

Text: "To recognise this taxon at species level we needed to propose a different name. The name Pultenaea pauciflora M.B.Scott was already occupied by a rare and endangered Western Australian species (Scott 1914). In proposing the name rariflora, we tried to maintain the sense of the name originally proposed by White (1939)."
