Banksia dallanneyi   Couch Honeypot Endemic

Banksia dallanneyi

B. dallanneyi flowers at the base of the plant and so there is a certain amount of scrabbling about in the undergrowth to see the actual flower and even then it's surrounded by leaf litter.

This name of this plant has suffered from the transfer to Banksia of the Dryandra genus. A Banksia lindelyana (Porcupine Banksia) a rarer plant which only grows north of Geraldton and looks nothing like Dryandra lindleyana, already existed so the species name as well as the genus had to be changed.

So Dryandra lindleyana is now known as Banksia dallanneyi - obvious really. When in doubt use the common name in the search engine as taxonomists aren't allowed to mess with them.
