Lipochaeta waimeaensis H. St. John , Pacific Sci. 26: 293. 1972.
Type information:
Holotype [BISH]. R. W. Hobdy 101. 17 April 1967. Kaua`i: Waimea Canyon, upper slope of W side.1200ft. Isotype(s) [BISH!, US!].

Note: St. John wrote "Holotype" on both BISH sheets, but illustrated 501058 and caption says it is from the holotype. We therefore consider it to be the holotype and the other sheet to be an isotype.
