Proteaceae Juss.
Isopogon buxifolius var. spathulatus Benth. , legitimate, scientific
Bentham, G. (1870), Flora Australiensis 5: 341 BHL [tax. nov.]
  • Type: "Drummond, 3rd coll. n. 249"
  • Comment: D.B.Foreman in P.M.McCarthy (ed.), Fl. Australia 16: 222 (1995), B.L.Rye & M.Hislop, Nuytsia 25: 304 (2015), and C.M.Parker & J.M.Percy-Bower, Nuytsia 27: 13 (2016), treat Isopogon spathulatus R.Br. as a nomenclatural synonym of "Isopogon buxifolius var. spathulatus (R.Br.) Benth.". However Bentham does not indicate that his name is a new combination or cite a basionym, as he does in other similar cases. Instead he places I. spathulatus in synonymy of I. buxifolius. Bentham's name is thus treated here as a new taxon based on a different type, Isopogon buxifolius var. spathulatus Benth.
