Styphelia dielsiana (E.Pritz.) Sleumer

Leucopogon dielsianus is a species of flowering plant in the heath family Ericaceae and is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. It was first formally described in 1904 by Ernst Georg Pritzel in Botanische Jahrbücher für Systematik, Pflanzengeschichte und Pflanzengeographie from specimens collected near Tammin.[2][3] The specific epithet (dielsianus) honours Ludwig Diels.[4]

Leucopogon dielsianus occurs in the Avon Wheatbelt, Coolgardie, Esperance Plains, Jarrah Forest and Mallee bioregions of south-western Western Australia and is listed under the name Styphelia dielsiana as "not threatened", by the Government of Western Australia Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.[5]
