Comments: an illegitimate, superfluous name (Shenzhen ICN Art. 52) for Banksea J. Koenig, unless that name comes to be treated as sufficiently alike to be confusable and a later homonym of Banksia J. R. Forst. & G. Forst. and Banksia L. f.\; a binding decision (Shenzhen ICN Art. 53.4) on the confusability of Banksea and Banksia is needed to determine whether Banksea or Hellenia should be accepted for this taxon
