Taxonomic notes: Silphiosperrna perpusillum was described by Steetz from depauperate plants with entire leaves and unbranched stems. The more luxuriant plants with pinnatisect leaves usually found were treated as var. tenella by Davis. No discontinuity was observed in S.Aust. material to justify recognition of varieties within the species.
