In Australia, New Guinea and the southwestern Pacific seven taxa are recognised in Sonneratia of which three species are redescribed in view of their Indo-Malesian counterparts (S. alba, S. caseolaris, S. ovata), one species is redescribed from its most likelyInd o-Malesian equivalent (S. lanceolata, being distinct from S.caseolaris), one widespread hybrid is fully described (S. x gulngai being the putative synonym of S. albax S. caseolaris), and two other hybrids (S. alba x S. gulngai, S. alba x S. lanceolata ) of very limited occurrence are described as sub-units of their closest ‘parental’ forms. A key, descriptions and full synonymy are given as well as 2 distribution maps, 6 other figures and one table.
