Abstract

Several plants described by Labillardire and indicated to have been collected in Tasmania are shown to be species endemic to Western Australia. The locations are corrected and collectors are indicated if the original specimens could not have been collected by Labillardiere. The reasons for these errors are discussed and it is concluded that caution is required in accepting Labillardiere's type locations.
