Hi Carole,

That's an interesting one - it's not listed in the Catalogue of Life, nor its source database for the genus (KEW WCSP). It may not be an accepted name, so I'll need to some research.

Carole, you'll be pleased to know I've worked it out. We already had an entry for it here:
Wedding Bush (Ricinocarpos pinifolius)

The genus is misspelt. Apparently it's a common enough misspelling that the Western Australian government department that deals with native flora has a comment on it:
https://florabase.dpaw.wa.gov....

A few other references to the species:
http://www.anpsa.org.au/r-pin....
http://bie.ala.org.au/species/...

The correct spelling is listed in the Catalogue of Life here:
http://www.catalogueoflife.org...

Unfortunately Ricinocarpus is also listed as a genus in the same family (hence the confusion!), although it's now a synonym for Acalypha.

Joshua; thank you for your research; I'd totally forgotten I'd been there and we'd left it for you to look into further. Thankyou very much @Australis, I really appreciate the information you've gathered for me and anyone else.
