The epithet ‘lyrata’ is unavailable in Goodenia  as it is preoccupied by G. lyrata  Carolin.


This species is endemic to the Sydney region of New South Wales and is named in honour of Roger Charles Carolin (1929-), an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney and Curator of the John Ray Herbarium (SYD) for more than 30 years. During his tenure Carolin published numerous treatments including revision of the family Goodeniaceae  for the Flora of Australia.
