  • 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)."
