Explanation of Plates.

  • A. Drummond's No. 184 (5th collection, 1849). Type of E. calycogona, Turcz.
  • B. Specimen, showing buds, from Swan Hill, Murray River. (J. G. Luehmann.)
  • C, D. Coarse form, from Kamerooka, Bendigo, Victoria. (A. W. Howitt.) [B, C, D are E. calycogona, Turcz.; typical form.]
  • E. A small fruited form, from Mildura, Victoria, showing slight angularity of the fruits; it shows transit to var. gracilis.

Plate 10.

Plate 10: EUCALYPTUS CALYCOGONA, Turcz. var., CELASTROIDES, Maiden (E. celastroides, Turcz.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • A. Drummond's No. 34 (5th collection, 1849). Type of E. celastroides, Turcz., (and of E. calycogona, Turcz., var. celastroides, Maiden).
  • B. Specimen of var. celastroides in fruit. Camp 63, Elder Expedition, Western Australia, 27th July, 1891. (R. Helms.)
  • C. Coolgardie, Western Australia. (L. C. Webster.) This also belongs to var. celastroides. The operculum is slightly pointed, and shows transit to E. fruticetorum, F.v.M.

Plate 11.

Plate 11: EUCALYPTUS CALYCOGONA, Turcz. (Three different varieties.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

  • A, B. Eucalyptus calycogona, var. gracilis. Mount Hope Road to Euabalong, N.S.W. (R. H. Cambage.)
  • C, D. “E. gracilis, var. Thozetiana, F.v.M.” Mueller's type from Expedition Range, Queensland. (Thozet.) See p. 82.
  • E, F. A form similar to C, D, from the Mackenzie River, Queensland. (Comm. by late Rev. Dr. Woolls.)
  • G, H. Both these specimens were labelled “E. fruticetorum, F.v.M.,” by Mueller himself; G is from Lower Avoca scrub, Wedderburn, Victoria (W. Percy Wilkinson); (H) is from Mildura, Victoria (W. Percy Wilkinson). Both are referable, in my opinion, to var. celastroides.
