Hibbertia glaucophylla is the correct name for the Western Australian species currently known as H. rupicola (Dilleniaceae)
K.R. Thiele [1,2*] & T.A. Hammer [3,4]
There has been historical confusion and error in the application and typification of the name Pleurandra glaucophylla Steud., likely caused by a slip of the pen on the original collecting label. We show that the type of P. glaucophylla falls within the circumscription of the species currently known as Hibbertia rupicola (S.Moore) C.A.Gardner, necessitating the new combination H. glaucophylla (Steud.) K.R.Thiele & Hammer as the correct name for that species.
