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 Pultenaea mucronata
Type: "this is a native of New Holland, and has lately been inroduced."
Text: "Nomina dubia... We did not see any type material of Pultenaea mucronata Lodd. and do not know if any type material is extant. The plate clearly shows a plant belonging to the species P. rosmarinifolia or to another species of the P. paleacea group. As the bracts are not depicted it is impossible to know which species this plate represents."
APC Comment: A name of uncertain application, but probably referable to Pultenaea paleacea or a related species (see R.P.J.de Kok and J.G.West, Austral. Syst. Bot. 17: 321 (2003)).
Lectotype: "(designated here): [illustration] “Pultenaea mucronata” in Loddiges, Bot. Cab. 18: t. 1711. 1831."
