[Extract] Livistona R.Br. is the most speciose genus of palms in Australia, with 18 indigenous species (Dowe & Jones 2011). Although the taxonomy, nomenclature and typification of Livistona species have been relatively stabilised by recent treatments (Rodd 1998; Dowe 2009, 2010) a number of issues with regards to status and nomenclature have remained unresolved. Examination of a number of names in synonymy has shown that the identity and status of the name L. leichhardtii F.Muell. has been misapplied and is the correct name for L. lorophylla Becc., a species occurring in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
