Abstract

Gagul, J.N., Simpson, L. & Crayn, D.M. (2018). Elaeocarpus carbinensis J.N.Gagul & Crayn (Elaeocarpaceae), a new species endemic to the Mt Carbine Tableland of northeast Queensland, Australia. Austrobaileya 10(2): 247 – 259. Elaeocarpus carbinensis from montane areas of the Wet Tropics bioregion of northeast Queensland, Australia is described and compared with similar species. Notes on habitat, distribution, and relationships, and a key to allied large-fruited species is provided. The conservation outlook for the species was determined with environmental niche modelling analyses using a range of carbon dioxide emission scenarios. The results indicate that by the year 2080, suitable climate for the species will have disappeared from its current range. Thus, an IUCN Red List category of Vulnerable under criterion 'restricted distribution, and plausibility and immediacy of threat' is recommended.
