Abstract Triodia caelestialis G. Armstrong, a new species from the central Kimberley of north-western Australia is described based upon morphological characters and reproductive traits. The taxon is distinguished from its sister species T. acutispicula Laza. by differences in inflorescence morphology and allocation of resources to sexual reproduction. T. caelestialis produces approximately five times more seed than T. acutispicula resulting in higher seedling densities and does not produce stolons whereas T. acutispicula allocates greater resources to asexual reproduction through the production of numerous stolons. A predicted species range map is produced using BIOCLIM modeling and the morphological effect of a leaf axil fungal infection is discussed.
