Research Associate) & Andy Robinson (Ku-ring-gai Council) describe a critically endangered new species of Hibbertia, only found in three small populations in northern Sydney: Hibbertia spanantha (0.7MB PDF); the discovery of the new species has already attracted quite a bit of media attention last year, e.g. by The Daily Telegraph and The Age
