The ALA list doesn't appear current Ken. C. spicatum ssp continentale was described in a 2010 paper and the taxon name is current in the census and APNI. Ummm I have noticed this before for some other plant taxa.1 votes

Choretrum spicatum has now been synonymised with Choretrum pauciflorum - silly taxonomists! (:->! Great finds and images.-1 votes
Amelia Duval 4 June 2014Physical Description
This rare spiked sour-bush popn is growing in Eucalyptus leucoxylon open woodland in shallow sandy-loam soils over calcrete. The seeds on the ground under the shrubs were mainly contained within scats and appeared entirely cleaned of fruits and undamaged.
The scats contained coarse plant material and appeared too large for rabbit scats0 votes
