  • APC Comment: Authorship of the genus Citriobatus is here attributed to Loudon. The description accompanying the name, albeit brief, is diagnostic (see also A.D.Chapman, Australian Pl. Name Index, 728 (1991) and L.W.Cayzer et al., Austral. Syst. Bot. 13: 847, 861 (2000)). An alternative view, attributing authorship to Putterlick, is outlined by R.Bakker & C.G.G.J.van Steenis, Fl. Males. ser. I, 5: 361 (1957).
