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.
Type:"The discoverer of this singular plant was the late Allan Cunningham, from whom we received upwards of forty years ago a portion of a frond, collected at the Endeavour river (lat. 15°S.) in 1819 ... Nothing, however, was known further of it till Mr. Walter Hill ... rediscovered it in Rockingham Bay, and sent a young living plant ... to the Royal Gardens, Kew, in 1863."
