The genus Livistona R.Br., over its entire range, is presently under revision by JLD. Recently, Rodd (1998) revised the Australian species, in which he described five new species and one variety, whilst new species have been described for Papua New Guinea and Australia (Dowe & Barfod 2001), and for Vietnam (Nguyen & Kiew 2000). Completion of the treatment of Livistona for New Guinea is part of the Palms of New Guinea project coordinated at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. With the description of these new species, there will be nine Livistona species recognized for New Guinea. Of these, six are endemic.
