Hibbertia vaginata

It was first formally described in 1863 by George Bentham who gave it the name Candollea vaginata in Flora Australiensis from specimens collected by James Drummond.[3][4] In 1880, Ferdinand von Mueller changed the name to Hibbertia vaginata in Fragmenta Phytographiae Australiae.[5] The specific epithet (vaginata) means “sheathed”, referring to the leaf base.[6]

This hibbertia grows in sandy or gravelly soils in the Jarrah Forest, Swan Coastal Plain and Warren biogeographical regions of south-western Western Australia.[2]

Hibbertia vaginata is classified as “not threatened” by the Western Australian Government Department of Parks and Wildlife.[2]
