The Hibiscus panduriformis Burm.f. species complex in Australia is revised. Six species are recognised, of which one is the widespread H. panduriformis; one, H. austrinus, is based upon H. panduriformis var. australis; and four represent new species, H. apodus, H. calcicola, H. fluvialis, and H. multilobatus. A new variety is recognised in H. austrinus, namely var. occidentalis. Distribution maps are provided for all taxa and an exsiccatae list is included.
