On comparing Australian collections of Jagera javanica (Blume) Kalkman with Malesian material, I was struck by some slight but constant differences in the flower. This led me to the recognition of a new subspecies, as follows: Jagera javanica (Blume) Kalkman, Blumea 7 (1953) 470 subsp. australiana Leenh., subsp. nov. Folia 9-15-jugata. Petala intus squama lata incurvata dense villosa 2 cristis grandiusculis latis glabris ornata instructa. Filamenta staminum plene dense candide villosa. – Typus: B. Gray 1455, Queensland, Cook Dist., Little Mossman, State Forest Res. 143, 16° 32' S, 145° 22' E, male fl. (BRI; iso in L, QRS).
