Australian Plant Name Index (APNI)
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. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.
Etymology:"Rather than maintaining the non-diagnostic and hence inappropriate epithet 'bracteata', the opportunity is taken to give the Queensland plant an epithet that is more readily associated with its geographic occurrence, and which serves to reinforce its distance from the oceanic islands upon which the other Lagunaria species occurs."
