    Hey Graeme...I had a look at your site as well as ALA and it looks like there are some images labelled 'Manulea xxxxx' within Brunia sp. I don't know if Brunia dorsalis and Manulea dorsalis are really the same thing now, and if so, which is the more common name.

    Could be Manulea dorsalis?

    Hi Simon. Yep you're right. Brunia dorsalis is the accepted name for Manulea dorsalis according to ALA. I'll make the change on my website.
