Scientific name:  Prostanthera clotteniana

Prostanthera clotteniana was described by F.M. Bailey as Hemigenia clotteniana in 1904 (Bailey 1904). The following year Bailey described P. atroviolacea (Bailey 1905). A collection of two specimens in April 1999 prompted a closer examination of the species, leading to the realisation that the two were synonymous, with the correct name being P. clotteniana (Bean 2000).

Prostanthera clotteniana is known only from a few rocky hilltops in State Forest 511 (formerly Timber Reserve 245), west of Ravenshoe, Queensland. In 1999, three stands were known with 1, 7 and 1 individuals in each (McDonald pers. comm. cited in Bean 2000). In 2001, the stand with 7 plants only had 2 plants following wildfire (McDonald 2002 pers. comm.). There may be suitable habitat for the species along the hills west of Atherton and Ravenshoe and south-west of Ravenshoe (ALA 2013).

All Prostanthera clotteniana plants seen to date have been recorded as growing in soils derived from Glen Gordon Volcanics (rhyolite) (McDonald 2002 pers. comm.).

Flowering has been recorded in April (McDonald 2002 pers. comm.).

No threats data available.
