Goodenia mystrophylla K.A.Sheph.  nom. nov.

Velleia spathulata  R.Br., Prodr. 580. 1810 - Lectotype (designated by Carolin, Proc. Linn. Soc. New South Wales 92(1): 51 (1967): Australia: New South Wales. … prope Kingstown Newcastle, Oct - Nov 1804, R.Brown s.n. (BM 001041385 p.p. [image!]); isolectotype: MEL 9776 p.p. [image!])).


The epithet ‘spathulata’ is unavailable in Goodenia  as it is preoccupied by Goodenia spathulata  de Vriese (= G. bellidifolia  Sm.).


The name is from the Greek mystron (spoon) - phyllus (-leaved), in reference to its spoon-shaped leaves.
