Coffea brassii (J.-F.Leroy)  A.P.Davis, comb. nov.

Basionym:— Paracoffea brassii  J.-F. Leroy (1968: 598). Psilanthus brassii ( J.- F. Leroy)  A. P. Davis (2003: 183). Type: PAPUA NEW GUINEA. Central Province: Baroka, Nakeo District , 30 m, 8 April 1933, L.J. Brass 3743 (holotype BO!, isotype A).

Distribution: — Papua New Guinea (Central Province) and Australia (Torres Strait Islands and Queensland). TDWG: 43 NWG; 50 QLD.

Characteristics: — Coffea brassii  is similar to C. mabesae (Elmer)  J.-F.Leroy from the Philippines but differs because the leaves, flowers (corolla) and fruits are almost consistently glabrous (leaves sometimes with a few scattered hairs) instead of these parts being distinctly puberulous to pubescent. Further morphological information for this species can be found in Leroy (1968), Davis (2003) and Forster (2004).
