  • 1. Facsimile of portion of drawing of type of E. incrassata, Labill., from tab. 150, “Novæ Hollandiæ Plantarum Specimen,” vol. ii. The venation is, as Mueller has pointed out, too straight.
  • 2a. Flowering twig; 2b, Fruits. Both No. 65 (3rd Collection), Drummond, Western Australia.
  • 3a, 3b. Leaves and fruits. “Between Albany and Williams River,” Western Australia (Webb.), from Melbourne Herbarium. (See page 105.)
  • 4. Diels' No. 2,990. Western Australia. See page 105. (Compare with E. erythronema, Turcz., var. Roei, Maiden, as regards shape of fruits. See page 110.)
  • 5a. Flowering twig; 5b, Front and back view of anther; 5c, Fruits, of Eucalyptus dumosa, var. scyphocalyx” (so labelled by Mueller), Eyre's Relief Camp, Great Australian Bight, W.A. Near typical incrassata. See page 105.

Plate 14.

Plate 14: EUCALYPTUS INCRASSATA, Labill. (Variety ANGULOSA, Bentham.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • 1. Flowering twig, of No. 75, Drummond. Note the broad foot-stalk, the corrugated calyx, and conical operculum.
  • 2. Fruits and leaf of “Eucalyptus costata,” Behr., and Müller, Boston Point, in Miquel's “Plantæ Müllerianæ.” See page 102. Fruits very ribbed (costate).
  • 3a, 3b. Twig (in flower) and early fruit of Eucalyptus angulosa, Schauer. “S. W. Bay, W. Australia” (Oldfield). See page 102.
  • 4. Twig showing buds of E. rugosa. Robert Brown (1802-5), southern coast of Australia. This specimen is in Herb. Mus., Paris, which it reached vid Kew. Note that this specimen approaches the blunt operculum form, Plate 15, figs. 5 and 6.
  • 5. Fruits. Near Port Lincoln, South Australia. (Walter Gill.)

Plate 15.

Plate 15: EUCALYPTUS INCRASSATA, Labill. (Miscellaneous forms.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • 1a, 1b. Buds and anthers (three views), Dimboola, Victoria. (F. Reader.)
  • 2a, 2b. Ninety-Mile (Murray) Desert, South Australia. (W. Gill.) Constricted and sub-cylindrical forms of fruit taken from the same branch.
  • 3a, 3b. Buds and fruits. Murray Desert (Tintinarra), South Australia. (R. H. Cambage.) The fruits are nearly sessile.
  • 4. Fruits. Dimboola, Victoria. (F. Reader.) Even more sessile than the preceding.
  • 5a. Twig with buds; 5b, Anthers, front and back view; 5c, Twig with fruits; 5d, Top view of fruit. All from Coolgardie, Western Australia. (R. Helms.) Note the blunt opercula, and the large, sub-conical fruits. See page 105. Note the similarity (except in size) to 6.
  • 6a. Twigs with buds and flowers; 6b, Anthers; three different views. Camp 49, Victoria Desert, Elder Exploring Expedition, 12th September, 1891. (R. Helms.) Note the blunt operculum and smallish fruits. See page 105.
  • 7a. Buds. 7b. Fruits. Emu Flat, Ninety-Mile Desert, South Australia. (W. Gill.) Note the shape of the opercula, bluntish, corrugated, and less in diameter than the calyx, tending to form the “egg-in-egg-cup” arrangement. This connects the type with var. dumosa, and with the conical-fruited and blunt operculum forms. See page 107. Compare Plate 21, figs. 1a, 1b. The fruits are sub-conical in shape, and intermediate in size between 5c and 7b.
  • 8. Fruits. Gol Gol, near Wentworth, N.S.W. (A. W. Howitt.) Sub-conical in shape.

Plate 16.

Plate 16: EUCALYPTUS INCRASSATA, Labill. (Variety DUMOSA, and forms near thereto.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • 1a. Twig with buds and flowers; 1b and 1c, Fruits, E. dumosa, A. Cunn., from near Wyalong, N.S.W., and one of the localities whence Allan Cunningham collected his type.

  • 3. Fruits of var. dumosa, Dimboola, Victoria. (F. Reader.) Note the exserted valves, which are occasionally observed in the species.
  • 4. Specimen of variety dumosa from De Candollean (Prodromus) Herbarium. De Candolle's label was “34, E. cneorifolia, DC., altera species. (2). Species foliis oblongo lanceolatis.” This specimen is fully discussed at p. 98.
  • 5a. Twig with buds; 5b, Fruits. Lake Bogan, River Murray, N.S.W. (A. W. Howitt.) A rather coarse form of variety dumosa and tending to the typical form of the species.
  • 6a. Buds and flowers; 6b, Front and back views of anther; 6c, Fruits. Sand plains north from the Stirling Range, Western Australia. A rather coarse, sessile-flowered form of the variety dumosa, illustrative of the great amount of the variation in the species incrassata. See p. 105. Compare Plate 21, figs. 2a, 2b.

  • 1a, 1b. Twig and separate head of fruits of Eucalyptus incrassata, Labill.; var. conglobata, R. Br. Port Lincoln, South Australia. (W. Gill, Dec., 1901.) See p. 101.
  • 2a, 2b. Flowering twig and anthers of “E. dumosa, A. Cunn.; var. conglobata, R. Br.” Port Lincoln, Wilhelmi (Herb. Melbourne). A type of E. dumosa, var. conglobata (R. Br.; B.Fl. iii, 230). See p. 101.

  • 4. “E. dumosa, var.” “Island viii, South Coast” (South Australia). Robert Brown, 1802–5. Another specimen.
  • 5a, 5b. “E. dumosa, var.” In early and riper fruit. “Bay ix, South Coast.” Robert Brown, 1802–5. Ex herb., Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh.
  • 6. Head of fruit. “South Coast.” R. Brown. Ex. herb., Berlin. Nos. 3, 4, 5, 6 are doubtless from the same batch of specimens collected by Robert Brown on the South Australian coast, and perhaps near what is now called Port Lincoln.

Plate 19.

Plate 19: 1. Young foliage of EUCALYPTUS INCRASSATA, Labill. Var. DUMOSA, F.v.M. ; the reaminder are forms connecting E. INCRASSATA, Labill., and E. FŒCUNDA, Schauer.

  • 1. Sucker of E. incrassata, Labill.; var. dumosa, F.v.M., from Wyalong, N.S.W.
  • 2. “E. obtusiflora, DC.” (incorrectly labelled). “Voyage du Capitaine Baudin. Nouv. Hollande. Côté Occident.” No. 25,490, U.S. National Herbarium. This is one of the numerous forms connecting E. incrassata, Labill., and E. fæcunda, Schauer. All the remaining plants depicted on Plate 19 may be also so designated, in my opinion. See page 117.
  • 3a, 3b, 3c. “E. obtusiflora, DC.” (incorrectly so labelled). “Australia,” Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris. 3a, in bud and early fruit; 3b, in flower; 3c, anthers taken from 3b.
  • 4a, 4b. Twig with buds; fruits. No. 3,226, West Australia (L. Diels). Herb., Berlin.
  • 5. Robert Brown. “Bay iii,” Iter Australiense, 1802–5. See p. 118.

Plate 20.

Plate 20: Forms (larger than those of Plate 19) connecting E. INCRASSATA, Labill., and FŒCUNDA, Schauer.

  • 1a, Twig with buds; 1b, Twig with fruits; 1c, Fruit showing marked rim. Oldfield, 1866 (W. Australia), Ex. Herb., Barbey-Boissier.
  • 2a, 2b. “Voyage du Capitaine Baudin. Ile des Amiraux, Nouv. Hollande.” Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris. U.S. Nat. Herb., No. 25,516.
  • 3a. “Voyage du Capit. Baudin. Côté Occid., 1801.” Twig with buds. 3b. Anthers from the same. Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris; 3c, 3d, Twig with fruits. “Voyage du Capit. Baudin, 1801. Nouv. Hollande.” Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris.
  • 4. “Capit. Baudin, 1801. Ile Decrès” (the modern Kangaroo Island). Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris.
  • 5. “Voyage du Capitaine Baudin, 1801. Nouv. Hollande, Iles Stériles.” Herb. Mus., Paris. Kew, Ex. Herb. Mus., Paris; also, No. 25,515, U.S. Nat. Herb.

All the plants depicted in Plate 20 are, in my opinion, forms connecting E. incrassata, Labill. and E. fœcunda, Schauer. So are some of those depicted on Plate 19, but those of Plate 20 are larger forms than those on Plate 19. I have gone very fully into the matter at pp. 117–119.
