Leucopogon decrescens Hislop , legitimate scientific apni APC Hislop, M. (1 May 2014), New species from the Leucopogon pulchellus group (Ericaceae: Styphelioideae: Styphelieae). Nuytsia 24: 86-90, Figs 1D, 3 (map), 6 [tax. nov.]

  • Etymology: "From the Latin decrescens (diminishing, narrowing), in reference to the outline of the narrowly ovate leaves which in their typical form taper more or less smoothly from the widest point in the basal half to the acute apex. This highlights an often useful character which helps to distinguish it from related species."
