Abstract

The genus Pluchea in Australia is revised. Six endemic species, i.e., P. baccharoides, P. dentex, P. dunlopii, P. ferdinandi-muelleri, P. rubelliflora, P. tetranthera and one non-endemic species, P. indica, are recognized. A key to the genera of the Australian Plucheeae and a key to the Pluchea species in Australia are provided, descriptions of the species, illustrations, chromosome numbers (first records for P. dentex and P. rubelliflora: 2n = 20) and a distribution map are presented.
