Plate 188: EUCALYPTUS TETRAGONA F.v.M. [See also Plate 189.] Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. tetragona F.v.M.

  • A. (Lanceolate-leaved series, with rather long petioles. It is not possible to make a sharp line of demarcation, as the leaves are transitional from lanceolate to ovate, but there is a certain amount of convenience in the grouping.)
  • 1a, 1b. Juvenile leaves, from the original plate of Eudesmia tetragona R.Br. in Appendix to Flinders' Voyage, ii, 599, t. 3.
  • 2. Buds, from shrub of 15 feet, Murchison River. (Augustus Oldfield.)
  • 3a. Leaf and fruits; 3b, fruit, end on. Drummond's No. 69.
  • 4a. Buds; 4b, leaf with fruits; 4c, fruit, as ripe as is available; 4d, fruit, end on. Esperance Bay (Correspondent of Mueller). This is the “tiansit to E. eudesmioides,” of Mueller, and is the specimen referred to by Mueller at p. 168, and by Diels and Pritzel at p. 168. The fruits are not quite ripe, and therefore imperfectly ribbed; this, I think, has contributed to the confusion concerning this specimen.
  • B. (Ovate-leaved series, with rather short petioles.)
  • 5. Juvenile leaves, showing stellate-hairs. Kalgan Plains, near Mount Stirling Range. (J.H.M.)
  • 6a. Apparently mature leaf; 6b, buds; 6c, front and back views of anther; 6d, flower in elevation; 6e, flower in plan, showing four bundles of stamens. Esperance. (J.H.M.)
  • 7. Leaves and buds. (Drummond's 4th Collection, No. 75.) (See also Plate 189.)

Plate 189.

Plate 189: EUCALYPTUS TETRAGONA F.v.M. (1,2) [See also Plate 188.] EUCALYPTUS EUDESMIOIDES F.v.M. (3-5) EUCALYPTUS EBANOENSIS Maiden n.sp. (6,7) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. tetragona F.v.M. (concluded).

  • 1a. Leaf and fruit; 1b, fruit. (Drummond's 4th Collection, No. 78.)
  • 2a. Fruits; 2b, fruit, end on. Stirling Range (Louis Dillon). These are the largest fruits I have seen in the species.

E. eudesmioides F.v.M.

  • 3a. Juvenile leaves (not in the earliest stage); 3b, buds; 3c, mature leaf and flowers; 3d, enlarged flower, in elevation; 3e, three views of anther; 3f, fruits.
  • In considering 3d, which is enlarged, it will be observed that the top of the calyx-tube has not the sunk appearance which is observable in the fruit. The explanation is that the calyx-tube increases in length as ripening proceeds, but the disc remains stationary. The calyx-teeth eventually become absorbed or dry up and break off. I have seen one of these four teeth alone remaining on the fruit. From Mount Curious, Murchison River (Augustus Oldfield). The type.
  • 4. Fruits, more angled than usual. Mingenew. (W. V. Fitzgerald.)
  • 5a, 5b, 5c, 5d, 5e. Various stages of juvenile leaves, 5a being in the earliest stage, while 5e is most mature, but not as mature as 3c. All from Mingenew. (J.H.M.) Mingenew is on the Midland Railway Line (Perth to Geraldton), and is 227 miles north of Perth.
  • E. Ebbanoensis n.sp.
  • 6a. Mature leaf; 6b, flowers; 6c, fruits. Sand Plain, Ebbano, east from Mingenew. (Dr. A. Morrison.) The type.
  • 7a. Mature leaf and buds; 7b, three views of anther; 7c, fruits. Comet Vale, 63 miles north of Kalgoorlie. (J. T. Jutson.)

E. Andrewsi Maiden.

  • 1. Fruits, pear-shaped and domed. From State Forest No. 308, parish Robertson, county of Gough, N.S.W. (Forest Guard's specimen, No. 20, June, 1903.)
  • 2a. Front and back views of anthers; 2b, larger, pear-shaped fruits. These are up to fourteen in the head from this locality. 2c, leaf in an intermediate stage. Boonoo Boonoo, Tenterfield District. (J. L. Boorman.)
  • 3. Fruits, nearly hemispherical and slightly domed, taken from the type specimen. Tingha, N.S.W. (R. H. Cambage.)
  • 4. Fruits, flat-topped, nine in the head, taken from a co-type. Howell, near Tingha. (J.H.M.)
  • 5a. Juvenile leaf, almost in the intermediate stage; 5b, mature leaf; 5c, buds; 5d, flowers, showing styles and stigmas; 5e, front and back views of anther; 5f, campanulate young fruits, a trifle diagrammatic; 5g, fruits; 5h, single fruit, both it and 5g being pear-shaped to conoid. Tenterfield, N.S.W. (C. F. Laseron). All drawn from type specimens of E. campanulata R. T. Baker, 5a, 5b being drawn from type specimens supplied by Mr. Baker, the remainder being reproduced from Mr. Baker's drawings of the type, Plate XIII, Vol. XLV, Journ. Roy. Soc. N.S.W.
  • I cannot separate leaves, buds, fruits, nor any other organs of E. campanulata from E. Andrewsi, and what has doubtless misled Mr. Baker in my drawings of the type of the latter in Plate 36 of the present work is the greater width of the juvenile leaf (he only depicts an intermediate leaf), and the almost hemispherical fruits, which are only one amongst several varying shapes.

E. angophoroides R. T. Baker.

(See also Plate 191.)

  • 6a. Juvenile leaf; 6b, intermediate leaf; 6c, mature leaf; 6d, buds; 6e, fruits. “Apple-topped Box,” Colombo, Bega District, N.S.W. (W. Baeuerlen.) The type.
  • 7. Fruits, not domed, “Cabbage Box.” Nangutta, near Eden. (W. Baeuerlen.)
  • 8a. Buds; 8b, front and back view of anther; 8c, fully ripe fruits. Yourie, via Bermagui. (Forest Guard William Dunn.)
  • 9a, 9b. Juvenile leaves, quite small; 9c, intermediate leaf (compare with 6b). Wyndham, near Eden. (J. L. Boorman.) For some other specimens belonging to the same locality showing further variation of leaves in this species, see Plate 191.

Plate 191: EUCALYPTUS ANGOPHOROIDES R. T. Baker (1,2) [See also Plate 91.] EUCALYPTUS KYBEANENSIS Maiden and Cambage. (3,4) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. angophoroides R. T. Baker (concluded).

  • 1a, 1b. Different stages of intermediate leaves, to be compared with those on the preceding Plate. Wyndham, N.S.W. (J. L. Boorman.)
  • 2. Perhaps the largest intermediate leaf I have seen in this species. Wyndham (E. C. Andrews per R. H. Cambage.)

E. Kybeanensis Maiden and Cambage.

  • 3a. Mature leaf; 3b, young buds with rounded opercula; 3c, front and back views of anther; 3d, fruits on a rachis square in section, which is unusual in fruiting specimens in Eucalyptus. This species is therefore one of the few which flower when the foliage is in the juvenile stage. Kybean, Monaro, N.S.W. (R. H. Cambage.) The type.
  • 4a, 4b. Juvenile leaves (N.B., the mature leaf is similar to 3a); 4c, very young buds, with pointed opercula; 4d, 4e, fruits. Blackheath, Blue Mountains, N.S.W. (R. H. Cambage and J.H.M.)
  • At one time labelled C, and looked upon as a hybrid of E. stricta Sieb. See Part IX, p. 283.
