Banksia croajingolensis Molyneux & Forrester , legitimate, scientific
Molyneux, W.M. & Forrester, S.G. (29 June 2007), Banksia croajingolensis (Proteaceae) a new species from East Gippsland, Victoria. Telopea 11(4): 419-422, Fig. 1 [tax. nov.]
  • Type: "Victoria, Croajingolong National Park, south-western heathland above Shipwreck Creek, c 12 km south-west of Mallacoota, Molyneux & Forrester s.n., 21 June 2006 (holo: MEL 2292847; iso: CANB, NSW)."
common name: Gippsland Banksia [n/a]
  • Etymology: "...the specific epithet commemorates the Gunai/Kurnai Nation name for the region from which the species is currently known. The original name Krowathunkoolong was adapted in the early days of European settlement to Croajingolong, the name of the county to which the new species is apparently endemic. The epithet 'croajingolensis' is a euphonic contraction of the less appealing 'croajingolongensis' as suggested by Johnson and Hill (1990) when they described Eucalyptus croajingolensis."
