New journal article: May 2016

Today, one paper was published in the online version of the Journal of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, Vol. 29:

A.R. Bean, The Solanum petrophilum complex (Solanaceae) revised, with the description of three new species (5MB PDF).

Solanum osteocarpum, one of the newly described species.

Tony Bean (Queensland Herbarium) revised a complex of taxa allied to the widespread Solanum petrophilum (rock nightshade, prickly nightshade). Previous authors recognised only S. eardleyae and S. petrophilum in the complex. In this paper, the author describes three new species from central Australia and splits them from S. petrophilum.
