The twelve indigenous Stipa species occurring in Tasmania are revised. These are
S. aphylla (Rodway) Townrow (endemic), S. bigeniculata Hughes, S. clelandii Summerhayes
and Hubbard, S. falcata Hughes, S. flavescens Labillardiere, S. nervosa var. neutralis
Vickery, S. mollis R. Br01vn, S. semibarbata R. Brown, S. pubinodis Trinius and
Ruprecht, S. stipoides (Hooker) Veldkamp, S. stuposa Hughes (endemic) and s. variabilis
A key to species is based on both floral and vegetative characters. Emended
species descriptions are based on type and/or matched specimens aug;nented by extensive
Tasmanian collections. Detailed figures produced at standard magnifications of each
species illustrate new characters of specific significance including adaxial leaf
surface ornamentation figured in scanning micrographs and numerous details of floret
S. elatior Hughes and S. compacta Hughes are reduced to synonomy with S. flavescens
Labillardiere. S. aphanoneura Hughes, S. setacea R. Brown, S. pubescens R. Brown,
S. elegantissima Labillardiere, S. laeviculmis Nees, S. eremophila Reader, and S.
hemipogon Bentham are excluded names.
The appendix includes a collectors' index (Tasmanian specimens), text tables and
descriptions, and figures of S. nervosa Vickery, S. pubescens R.Br. and S. blackii C.E.
Hubbard closely allied to and previously confused with S. nervosa var. neutralis,
S. pubinodis and S. stuposa respectively.
