Brachychiton bidwillii, commonly known as the little kurrajong,[1] is a small tree of the genus Brachychiton found in tropical areas of eastern Australia.[2] It was originally classified in the family Sterculiaceae, which is now within Malvaceae.[a]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The genus Brachychiton was traditionally placed in the family Sterculiaceae, but that family, along with Bombacaceae and Tiliaceae, has been found to be polyphyletic and is now sunk into a more broadly-defined Malvaceae[3]
