Name derivation:
Hibbertia named after George Hibbert (1757-1837), a London merchant who maintained a private botanic garden at Chelsea. Platyphylla from the Greek 'platys' meaning broad or flat and 'phyllon' meaning a leaves; referring to the species relatively broad and flat leaves with more or less recessed central vein in contrast to H. stricta var. glabriuscula, to which it was often confused with, which has the central vein raised above the revolute margins.
