Plate 27.

E. coriacea, A. Cunn.

Plate 27: EUCALYPTUS CORIACEA, A. Cunn. Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • 1a. Twig with fruits; 1b, buds, of E. coriacea, var. alpina, from top of the Canoblas, Orange, N.S.W. (R. H. Cambage). Note the domed rim of the fruit and the hemispherical opercula.
  • 2. Var. alpina, Mount Tabletop, Kiandra, N.S.W. (E. Betche). Note the broad rim and the tendency to angularity in the fruits.
  • 3. Juvenile foliage, Pretty Point, Mount Kosciusko, N.S.W. (J.H.M.). The stem of this specimen was flat and ribbon-like.
  • 4. Richmond Road, near Risdon, Tasmania (No. 266, Rodway). Note the hooked leaves (by no means rare) and the small fruit.
  • 5a. Leaves and buds; 5b, fruits; Berrima, N.S.W., September, 1901 (J.H.M.). See p. 140. This form probably exhibits hybridism, and will be dealt with under E. vitrea.

Plate 28.

Eucalyptus coriacea, A. Cunn.

Plate 28: 1 and 2. EUCALYPTUS CORIACEA, A. Cunn. 3 to 5, E. COCCIFERA, Hook., f. Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • 1a and 1b. Juvenile foliage; 1a, nearly orbicular; from the Canoblas, near Orange (Messrs. Elliott Bros., Sydney); and

  • 2a, 2b. Two pairs of seedling leaves from Mount Wellington, Hobart, Tasmania (J.H.M.). Stem markedly tuberculate.
  • 3a, 3b, 3c. Leaf, front and back view of anther and fruits, from Mount Wellington (J.H.M.).
  • 4a. Leaf; 4b, buds; 4c, fruits; of the type, viz., 1,076, R. Gunn, Mount Wellington, 1844.
  • 5a. Leaf and flower buds; 5b, flowers of the type of E. daphnoides, Miq., from Mount Laperouse, Tasmania (C. Stuart).

There is a good figure in Hooker's Fl. Tas. That in Bot. Mag. 78, 4,967, has expanded flowers only and is less good. There is a poor figure in Journ. Hort. Soc. vi, 222, and one in Gard. Chron., 27th March, 1880, page 395 (young buds and expanded flowers). I believe there are figures in Fl. des Serres, vi, 736, and Lem. Jard. Fl., 242, but I have not seen them. Mueller does not figure this species in his Eucalyptographia. I intend the drawings in the present work to supplement those of Fl. Tas.
