Pleurophascum occidentale is described as a new species from Albany, Western Australia. It differs strongly from Pleurophascum grandiglobum, the only other species in the endemic Southern Hemisphere family Pleurophascaceae. In particular, P. occidentale is a larger plant, 2-3 cm tall, with elliptic leaves about 6 mm long and 2.5 mm wide. The acute apex narrows into a flexuose, hoary, serrate hairpoint.
