Fabaceae Lindl.
Pultenaea daena Orthia & Chappill , legitimate scientific apni APC Orthia, L.A., de Kok, R.P.J. & Crisp, M.D. (20 May 2005), A revision of Pultenaea (Fabaceae: Mirbelieae). 4. Species occurring in Western Australia. Australian Systematic Botany 18(2): 171-172, Fig. 9d (map) [tax. nov.]
  • Type: [locality abbreviated to protect taxon] W of Ravensthorpe W.A., 27.x.1997, Lepschi & Fuhrer 3743 (holo-, PERTH; iso-, CANB).
  • Etymology: "The species epithet, 'daena', is the name of a Zoroastrian goddess whose name means 'that which was revealed', a suitable name for a new species. Daena was associated with the first light of dawn, an image that resonates with the orange and red colours and radiate markings of the standard petal of of Pultenaea deana. Daena's mother, Armaiti, is associated with the earth, and is the goddess of fertility and the dead (who are buried beneath the earth), an appropriate association for this half-buried shrub. The species also honours Daena Murray, the first author's mother, with the collections Orthia 57 and Orthia 58 being made on her birthday."
