Abstract: In heteroblastic development the juvenile
and adult phases of a plant have the same genotype
but the phenotypes are different, and Cook
(1968, p. 97), noting that such phenotypic plasticity
has undoubtedly led to a large number of
"paper species," finds it rather shocking that so
little information on phenotypic modification is.
presented in formal taxonomic work. In the
case here described, in the Pacific genus Collospermum
(Liliaceae), a single plant can, during
its lifetime, display contrasts comparable to
some that characterize species or sections in the
closely related genus Astelia.
