Phacelocarpus complanatus Harvey, 1859b: 313–314 (lectotype locality: Southport, Tasmania fide Searles, 1968: 25).—De Toni & Forti, 1923: 23–24.— V. May, 1965: 373.
INDIAN OCEAN DISTRIBUTION: Australia.
Note: The record of De Toni & Forti is in conflict with the treatment by Womersley (1994: 396) in which the range was given as Elliston, South Australia to Port Phillip Heads, Victoria. Pocock (1958: 26) recorded Phacelocarpus sp. from Mozambique and suggested a comparison with P. complanatus.
