Speculantha ventricosa is a new species formally described in 2008 named by David L. Jones, then Chief Plant Scientist (now retired) at the Centre for Plant Biodiversity and Research at the National Herbarium. It is a division of the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation). Speculantha is one of the now 17 different genera, which were originally Pterostylis. Some of the Herbaria and scientists in Australia do not recognise the newly named genera, either Australian or exotic.
