Goodenia collaris (F.Muell.) K.A.Sheph.  comb. nov.

Scaevola collaris  F.Muell., Rep. pl. Babbage’s Exped. 15 (1859) - Type citation: "On sand ridges near Wonnomulla." Possible syntype: Australia. South Australia. Lake Eyre, s. dat., leg. ign. s.n. (AD 97604803 [image!]).


Carolin (1992c) cited the type of the name Scaevola collaris  F.Muell. as "Near Wonnamulla, S.A., Babbage Expedition; holo: MEL." A specimen of S. collaris  labelled "NW interior of South Australia, 1859" (J.M.Stuart s.n., MEL 1520987A, n.v.) is held at MEL (N.G. Walsh, pers. comm. 2019), but this is unlikely to represent original material of this name, and Carolin’s text may be an interpretation of the type citation rather than label data from any physical specimens. Similarly, a specimen of S. collaris  at K labelled "Mr McDougal [sic; McDouall] Stuart’s journey of 1859 to the interior of Australia" (K 000216199 [image!])), is also unlikely to represent original material, as noted by Roger Carolin’s 1973 annotation on the specimen. Both specimens at K and MEL are likely to have been collected during McDouall Stuart’s second or third expeditions to northern South Australia during 1859, rather than during the Babbage expedition of 1858 (see Morris 1976 and Symes 1969, respectively). A collection at AD (AD 97604803) may represent original material of this name. The collection comprises two flowering branchlets of Goodenia collaris  , is labelled " Scaevola collaris  F.v.Muell. / Lake Eyre" in an unknown hand, and matches the description given in the protologue, with the exception of fruits, which are absent from this material. The AD material is here treated as a possible syntype, in the absence of conclusive information as to its exact origin and history at this time.
