About Townsville Region synonyms: to top |

Some synonyms may be different in other parts of the state

Name changes listed are not all synonyms, a very small number of these changes correct identifications thought wrong.

A few slightly incorrect ID's are inevitable in all plant publications, including this one.

Names invented locally to identify unidentified species are also included.

Many of these locally invented temporary names have the author "Silke" included in the name, this just connects a pressed specimen to the species, the credit for the ID invariably still belongs to Cumming.
