The genus Jubula Dumort is reported, as new to Australia, represented by a new subspecies Jubula hutchinsiae Hook. ssp. australiae. It occurs in tropical rainforest on Paluma Range, North Queensland, in the Australian Wet Tropics. It differs from ssp. hutchinsiae and from ssp. javanica by its very narrow underleaves with elongated, acute segments and by its granulate-papillose leaf cuticle.
