Australian Plant Name Index
The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a list of all

The APNI database also contains the name records of the Census
of Australian Vascular Plants (CAVP). CAVP names are
flagged in APNI under the heading "Census". A "Y" indicates that
the name is a currently accepted name; an "N" indicates that the name is
not currently accepted.
The web versions of APNI are not case-sensitive and a trailing
wild-card is assumed.
The distribution by state and by region within state follows the published
version of the CAVP.
