ⓘ Banksia strictifolia

Banksia strictifolia is a shrub endemic to Western Australia.

It was known as Dryandra stricta until 2007, when all Dryandra species were transferred to Banksia by Austin mast and Kevin Thiele. As the name "Banksia" stricta was already published in reference to the plant now known as Pimelea stricta, mast and Thiele had to choose a new specific epithet. Their choice, "strictifolia", retains the original names of alleged Greek strictus "straight and crowded", and adds the use of the Latin Folium "leaf", the name refers to straight leaves densely Packed on the branches. Strictus is not used in Ancient Greece, but in classical Latin strictus means "straight".
