Explanation of Plates (168–171).

Plate 168.

Plate 168: EUCALYPTUS LATIFOLIA F.v.M. Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.



E. latifolia F.v.M.

  • 1. Juvenile orbicular leaf. Not quite in the alternate stage, but the youngest leaf I have seen. Bathurst Island, Northern Territory. (G. F. Hill, No. 464.)
  • 2a. Mature leaf; 2b, large corymbose panicle, showing buds, flowers, and very young fruits; 2c, front and back views of anther; 2d, fruits of varying size and shape. Bathurst Island. (G. F. Hill, No. 469.)
  • 3. Immature fruit, markedly urceolate. Pine Creek, Northern Territory. (Dr. H. I. Jensen, No. 357.)
  • 4. Mature and starved fruits. Between Bull Oak and Crescent Lagoon, Darwin to Katharine River. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)
  • 5. Mature fruits with remarkably slender peduncles and pedicels; the leaves comparatively small. Darwin to Roper River. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)
  • 6a. Mature leaf; 6b, immature fruits. McKinlay Flats, Northern Territory. (Dr. H. I. Jensen.)

Plate 169.

Plate 169: EUCALYPTUS FOELSCHEANA F.v.M. [See also Plate 170.] Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.



E. Foelscheana F.v.M. (See also Plate 170.)

  • 1. (At back), portion of a large juvenile leaf (the original is 15 by 11 inches, and even larger were seen). Katharine River, Northern Territory. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)
  • 2. Small, scarcely urceolate fruits, attached to a mature leaf 20 to 16 cm. Katharine River. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)
  • 3a. Mature leaf; 3b, immature buds; 3c, immature fruit. McKinlay River Flats. (Dr. H. I. Jensen.)
  • 4a. Twig, bearing buds and flowers; 4b, front and back views of anthers; 4c and 4d, fruits, views end-on and in elevation. Darwin (correspondent of Mueller).
  • 5. Mature fruits of the large or typical form, near Darwin. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)
  • 6a. Mature leaf; 6b, unusually oblong leaf; 6c, small, mature fruit. Track to Katharine River. (Prof. W. Baldwin Spencer.)

Plate 170.

Plate 170: EUCALYPTUS FOELSCHEANA F.v.M. (1-3) [See also Plate 169.] (The lanceolar-leaved form.) E. ABERGIANA F.v.M. (4,5) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.



E. Foelscheana F.v.M. (See Plate 169.)

(The lanceolar-leaved form.)

  • 1. Twig with long lanceolar leaf and flat-topped opercula (compare fig. 4a, Plate 169). “North Coast” (Northern Territory). Robert Brown, “Iter Australiense, 1802–5.”
  • 2a. Twig with shorter lanceolar leaf and fruits; 2b, fruit, end view. Darwin (correspondent of Mueller, by whom the specimen was sent to the Calcutta Herbarium).
  • 3a. Small lanceolar leaf, comparable in size and shape with that of 6a, Plate 169. (Note the straight insect markings, parallel to the secondary veins. They have also been observed in Eucalyptus brachyandra F.v.M., but apparently not previously recorded); 3b, small fruits; 3c, winged seeds. Between Cullen River and Woolgni, Northern Territory. (Dr. H. I. Jensen, No. 418.)
  • The lanceolar-leaved form of this species is referred to at pp. 5 and 6. It would appear that a variety name for this form would not be justified in the present state of our knowledge, for comparing Plates 170 and 169, it will be observed that there is much variation in the shape of the leaves of the species. Further, if the fruits be compared, e.g., the small fruits, fig. 3b (Plate 170) with the small fruits 2 (Plate 169), and the large fruits, fig. 2a and 2b (Plate 170) with the large fruits of fig. 5 (Plate 169), it will be seen that small and large fruits occur in both the typical and lanceolar-leaved forms.

E. Abergiana F.v.M.

  • 4a. Twig with leaf, buds, and flowers; 4b, fruit, with a very short pedicel, from the drawing of the type in Mueller's “Eucalyptographia.”
  • 5a. Mature leaf (rather broader than any leaf depicted by Mueller's artist); 5b, immature bud; 5c, anthers in different positions; 5d, fruit (rather more sessile than depicted by Mueller's artist). Rockingham Bay, Queensland. (J. Dallachy.) Both 4 and 5 drawn from the type.

Plate 171.

Plate 171: EUCALYPTUS PACHYPHYLLA F.v.M. (1-3) var. sessilis. (4-7). E. PYRIFORMIS TURCZ var. Kingsmilli Maiden. (8). E. OLDFIELDII F.v.M. (9). [See also Plate 73, fig. II, and Plate 74, figs. 1 and 2.] F. DRUMMONDII Benth. (10-12). [See also Plate 74, figs. 3,5,6,7,9,10.] Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.



E. pachyphylla F.v.M.

  • 1a. Leaf; 1b, fruit. Hooker's Creek, Northern Territory. (Mueller.) Type of the species (N.B., the fruits drawn in “Eucalyptographia” have the pedicels too long and the peduncle is not shown).
  • 2. Fruit from Pituri Creek, see p. 14. (A. Henry, 1889). From the Melbourne Herbarium. Not far removed from the type. Note the pedicels in both cases.
  • 3. Fruit, Linda Creek (see p. 14). From Melbourne Herbarium. Note the articulation of the peduncle to the single pedicel.

Var. sessilis var. nov.

  • 4a. Sessile head of buds; 4b, underside view of the same, showing an annulus or disc; 4c, side-view of disc. The disc represents morphologically a fusion of pedicels, seated on a scarcely perceptible peduncle; 4d, views of anther. Glen of Palms, Macdonnell Ranges, “W.A. Expedition, 1872” (E. Giles).
  • These are the same buds as those figured in the E. pachyphylla plate in the “Eucalyptographia.”
  • 5a. Ripe fruits (showing annulus); 5b, immature fruit. Dalhousie Springs (Finke River, 1880). (Rev. H. Kempe). From Melbourne Herbarium.
  • 6. Leaf and fruits. North of Macdonnell Ranges (Plenty River district). (Lieut. Dittrich.) From Melbourne Herbarium. See p. 16.
  • 7. Fruits. Finke River. (Rev. W. Schwarz, 1886.) From Melbourne Herbarium. See p. 15.

E. pyriformis Turcz., var. Kingsmilli Maiden.

  • 8a. Mature leaf; 8b, the broadest leaf I have seen, but not in the juvenile stage; 8c, flowers, showing the slender peduncles and pedicels; 8d, anthers; 8e, side-view of operculum. Note the dark spot which represents the aperture into the apex of the operculum into which the style and stigma are inserted as into a sheath or case; 8f, flower-bud, showing the shortest operculum and pedicel seen; 8g, immature fruit; 8h, perfectly ripe fruit. All from New England to Mt. Keith (about 160 miles north of Leonora, W.A. (Hon. W. Kingsmill, M.L.C.) The type.

E. Oldfieldii F.v.M.

  • 9. Anthers. Mingenew, W.A. (J.H.M.)

E. Drummondii Benth.

  • 10. Juvenile leaf. Near York, W.A. (O. H. Sargent.)
  • 11. Front and back view of anther. Cut Hill, York. (O. H. Sargent.)
  • 12. Front and back view of anther. Cut Hill, York. (O. H. Sargent.)
  • Note some variation in Nos. 11 and 12.
