Dodonaea attenuata Cunn. is now known as Dodonaea viscosa Jacq.
subsp. angustissima (DC.) J. West.

Cunningham et. al. include 12 taxa of Dodonaea in western N.S.W.
"Flora of New South Wales" (Harden, G.J. (ed.). (1991). New South
Wales University Press.), a more recent treatment of the genus,
includes some 17 taxa in the equivalent area.  As this treatment
places in synonymy a few of these names that appear in Cunningham et.
al. as well as include a number of new names, I would be cautious in
using names from Cunningham.
