Reinwardtia 20(2): 57−61. — Deparia stellata is a new species of highland in Eastern New Guinea, described from a specimen found among unidentified piles of New Guinean Expedition in 1975. Its distinctive stellate-hairs on all axis and occasionally on rachis-scale margin are the main character that differentiate the species to other Deparia.
