A new combination in the Caledonian genus Boronella Baill. is made for Boronia koniambiensis Daniker. Boronella apparently belongs to a lineage otherwise comprised of Myrtopsis Engl., Euoida J. R. & G. Forster, Brombya F. Mueller, and Medicosma J. D. Hooker. Boronia Smith and 16 related genera (the tribe Boronieae Bartling, as here construed) differ from the Boronella lineage in embryo shape.
