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.
Showing Macrozamia hopeites
Type: "--- collected from a sandy bed exposed during 1947 and 1948 on top of the early Tertiary brown coal at the Lucifer Mine, Bacchus Marsh, Victoria."
Etymology: "... show definite cycadean affinities inasmuch as they are in close structural agreement with leaflets of Macrozamia hopei (W. Hill) F. M. Bailey of North Queensland. For this reason they have been referred to Macrozamia and given the specific name 'hopeites'."
