Abstract:
A taxonomic revision is presented of the Hydriastele wendlandiana group, a well-defined species grouping within the Indo-Pacific palm genus Hydriastele that occurs in New Guinea, the Bismarck Archipelago and northern Australia. We accept five species: Hydriastele kasesa, H. rheophytica, H. variabilis, H. wendlandiana and H. apetiolata sp. nov. and provide fundamental information about each of those taxa including a summary of the group’s taxonomic history and phylogeny, a distribution map, a key to the species, species descriptions with scientific illustrations, and IUCN Red List assessments.
