Dodonaea crucifolia I.Telford & J.J.Bruhl (Sapindaceae, Dodonaeoideae), endemic to north-eastern New South Wales, Australia, and previously confused with D. hirsuta (Maiden & Betche) Maiden & Betche, is described as new. Dodonaea hirsuta is recircumscribed with the D. crucifolia components removed and with male flowers described for the first time. The distribution, habitat, and conservation status of both species are discussed and a table is provided comparing selected morphological attributes. Images of the new species and D. hirsuta are provided. The identification keys in Flora of Australia and NSW FloraOnline are modified to include the new species.

Pycnolejeunea glauca, originally described by Stephani based on a collection in New Zealand by William Colenso, was placed by Grolle into the synonymy of the paleotropical species Cheilolejeunea intertexta with a type from Micronesia. In this study, we generated DNA sequences from a recently-collected sample of P. glauca and compared them with published sequences of C. intertexta from China. Pycnolejeunea glauca was recovered in the phylogenetic analyses as sister to C. nipponica, whereas C. intertexta grouped in another clade with C. vittata and C. streimannii. The analysis justifies the reinstatement of P. glauca as the new combination Cheilolejeunea glauca, a New Zealand endemic. Descriptions and illustrations are provided of key features of this species together with data on its position in the phylogeny of the genus.

Twenty-one Grevillea species currently comprise the Triloba Group sensu Flora of Australia, or Group 1 sensu The Grevillea Book. All species except the transcontinental species G. anethifolia R.Br. are distributed in southwest Western Australia. Grevillea pieroniae Olde, herein described, is currently treated as Grevillea sp. Stirling Range (D.J. McGillivray 3488 & A.S. George) by the Western Australian Herbarium. It has some affinity with Grevillea anethifolia through shared possession of similar truncate-conical to cylindrical pollen-presenters. Grevillea pieroniae is a rare species that is potentially threatened by Phytophthora cinnamomi, fire frequency, a drying climate, as well as grazing by feral and native herbivores, so requires careful assessment and ongoing monitoring. A short history of the Triloba Group is provided to give context to Grevillea pieroniae and as precursor to other related species soon to be recognised.

Camptochaete monolina sp. nov. is described from three collections in the Australian Wet Tropics bioregion. Camptochaete subporotrichoides (Broth. & Geh.) Broth. (Bryophyta: Lembophyllaceae), previously known from Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Fiji, is reported as new to Australia from several collections in the same bioregion.

Thottea tapanuliensis Mustaqim (Aristolochiaceae) is described here based on a plant collected from the west coast of northern Sumatra. This species is only known from the type collection and its threat ranking is assessed here as Critically Endangered. Morphological descriptions, photographs, a distribution map, and discussions are provided, as is a key to all Thottea species in Sumatra.

This is the first treatment of the family Octoblepharaceae for Australia. The only known Australian species, Octoblepharum albidum Hedw., is described and illustrated, and a map of its known and potential distribution in Australia is included. Octoblepharum exiguum Müll.Hal. is here treated as a new synonym of O. albidum.
