APC Comment
The spelling of the species epithet has varied between coerulea and caerulea. Brown, Prodr. (1810) seems to have used the ae ligature (the typography is not clear), but Bentham, Fl. Austral. 6: 265 (1873) adopted the spelling coerulea (with oe ligature). Smith, Fl. Austral. 45: 32 (1983) also adopted the coerulea spelling, but Chapman, APNI 164, 1574 (1991) used the spelling caerulea. The last is adopted here as it seems to reflect the original orthography, but some prefer the 'oe'.
