Abstract

An Australian endemic species of tassel fern Huperzia fetrastichoides A.R.Field and Bostock is described as new. This species was previously confused with the non-Australian species Huperzia prolifera (Blume) Trevis. The new species is restricted to upland Queensland rainforests from the Windsor Tableland south to the Clarke Range west of Mackay. It is listed as Vulnerable under the Qneensland Nature Conservation Act 1992. A dichotomous identification key to the Australian species of Huperzia is provided.
