In Birch (2015), Astelia banksii A.Cunn. was incorrectly stated as present in New Caledonia within the “Included species and distribution” section for Astelia sect. Isoneuron Skottsb. (page 112). The correct distribution of Astelia banksii A.Cunn. is New Zealand. The Astelia sect. Isoneuron Skottsb. “Included species and distribution” section should read: Included species and distribution. New Caledonia: A. neocaledonica Schltr. New Zealand: A. banksii A.Cunn.

Additionally, the designation of the A. microsperma Colenso pro parte type was incorrectly stated (page 113) as being made by Skottsberg on page 81 (1934). This type designation was made by Skottsberg on page 87 (1934). The designation of the A. microsperma type should correctly read:

Astelia microsperma Colenso pro parte, Trans. & Proc. New Zealand Inst. 17: 251. 1885 (description of fruit only). Type: NEW ZEALAND. North Island. Seventy-mile Bush, between Norsewood and Dannevirke, County of Waipawa. 1884, W. Colenso s.n. (Lectotype: K [000524879, digital image!], fruiting material in packet, designated by Skottsberg, 1934, 87).

I thank Jérôme Munzinger (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement) for alerting me to the error in the stated distribution of A. banksii.
