Plate 194.

Plate 194: EUCALYPTUS WOOLLSIANA R. T. Baker. (A composite species, mainly consisting of E. odorata Behr and Schlecht. The drawings are all by Mr. Baker, or vouched for him, except No. 4). Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. Woollsiana R. T. Baker.

The figures on this Plate are taken from three different sources, all certified to by Mr. Baker as E. Woollsiana. They are:—

A. Proc. Linn. Soc. N.S.W., xxv, 684, Plate XLIII (1900). This is the type.

(E. Woollsiana is mixed material in which E. odorata predominates. As this has been discussed at pp. 199 to 201, the facts will not be repeated here.)

Mr. Baker gives no particulars as to the locality of the specimen figured as his type. In Plate 194, 1a, is a reproduction of fig. 1 of Mr. Baker's drawing of the type. It is a broadish, mature leaf. 1b, mature leaf and pointed buds. Reproduction of fig. 2 of type. (This drawing is modified by the statement at p. 132 of the “Research,” “Operculum often more obtuse than shown in the Plate.”) 1c, twig with mature leaves, flowers, and immature fruit. Reproduction of fig. 3 of type. 1d, mature fruits. Reproduction of fig. 8 of type.

B. “Research on the Eucalypts,” Baker and Smith (1902).

In the Plate of E. Woollsiana in that work Messrs. Baker and Smith added 2a (Plate 194), which is a reproduction of fig. 1 of the “Research” Plate; 2b, 2c, which are broadish intermediate leaves, reproductions of Nos. 6 and 7 of the “Research” Plate.; 2d, a very long, narrowish, mature leaf, a reproduction of No. 5 of the “Research” Plate.

C. “Forest Flora of South Australia,” J. Ednie Brown, Plate 29. The figure of E. odorata in that work is in Proc. Roy. Soc. S.A., xl, 479 (1916), attributed by Mr. Baker to E. Woollsiana.

  • 3a. Flowering twig; 3b, fruits (both reproduced from J. E. Brown's Plate); 4, anther, E. odorata. Murray Bridge, South Australia. (R. H. Cambage and J.H.M.)
