Craspedia

Australia

Key to the Australian species of Craspedia (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae).

The shortcomings of the key reflect remaining uncertainty with species delimitation. It does not cover two potential undescribed (currently phrase-named) putative species from Victoria, sp. Subalpine and sp. Derrinallum, but it covers two such entities from Western Australia. Given the plasticity of many species it is preferable to examine several organs of the same type and ideally several individuals of a population.
