Abstract


Weber, Lui & Forster, Paul. (2021). Endiandra wongawallanensis L.Weber (Lauraceae), a new species from south-east Queensland allied to E. floydii B.Hyland. Austrobaileya. 11. 155-169.


Analysis of morphological variation in plants previously classified as Endiandra floydii B.Hyland has revealed that two allopatric taxa are present.


Endiandra floydii has a more restricted distribution than previously given and now appears to be only present in northeast New South Wales.


The Queensland plants differ in a range of both vegetative and reproductive characters and are described here as the new species E. wongawallanensis L.Weber.


It is endemic to a small area south of Beenleigh and north of Tallebudgera Creek.


The new species is described with notes on distribution, habitat, dispersal ecology and conservation status. The biogeographic context for both species and the areas they occur in is discussed.
