In the latest issue of Systematic Botany (39(2):396-404. 2014), Dr. Bine and colleagues have taken care of yet another bunch of wrongly named Polyalthia species (four of them) and the genus Fitzalania. Fitzalania comprises two species endemic to Australia. Molecular data has long shown that this later genus was nested within the lovely Meiogyne genus (Mols et al. 2004; Xue et al. 2011, Thomas et al. 2012) .
