Abstract

On the basis of DNA sequence data, the affinities of the recently described genus Granitites (Rhamnaceae) from south-western Australia are confirmed to be with Alphitonia, as suggested by Rye (1996), rather than members of Pomaderreae, as thought by earlier authors. The findings of this study provide molecular confirmation that some components of the south-west Australian flora may be relicts of old rainforest lineages.
