Hay, A. (Royal Botanic Gardens, Mrs Macquaries Road, Sydney, NSW, Australia 2000) and Taylor, S.M. (Northern Territory Herbarium, Parks & Wildlife Commission of the Northern Territory, P.O. Box 496, Palmerston, NT, Australia 0831) 1996. A new species of Typhonium Schott (Araceae-Areae) from the Northern Territory, with notes on the conservation status of two Areae endemic to the Tiwi Islands. Telopea 6(4): 563-567. Typhonium johnsonianum is described as new from Black Jungle, NT. The discovery of two or three further incompletely known Northern Territory Areae is noted. The newly described species is fitted into a previously published key to Typhonium in Australasia. T jonesii A. Hay is noted to be widespread and fairly common in the Tiwi Islands. A second population of the rare Lazarum mirabile A. Hay is reported from Melville Island. Conservation status of these taxa is proposed using ROTAP codes.
