Banksia heliantha, commonly known as Oak-leaved Dryandra, is a shrub endemic to Western Australia.
It was known as Dryandra quercifolia until 2007, when all Dryandra species were transferred to Banksia by Austin Mast and Kevin Thiele. As there was already a plant named Banksia quercifolia (Oak-leaved Banksia), Mast and Thiele had to choose a new specific epithet; their choice, "heliantha" is from the Greek helios ("sun") and anthos ("flower"), in reference to the large, bright yellow inflorescences.
