Abstract

Only one in three species of Macadamia known from Malesia is native: M. hildebrandii Steenis, a narrow endemic of Sulawesi. Macadamia ternifolia F. Muell. and M. tetraphylla L. A. S. Johnson are introductions from eastern Australia, the former producing the macadamia nut of commerce. Recent botanical explorations on ultramafic substrates in Southeast Sulawesi have uncovered populations of a new species, M. erecta, with close relations to Hildebrand's macadamia.
