Explanation of Plates (196–199).

Plate 196.

Plate 196: EUCALYPTUS PANICULATA Sm. [See also Plates 57 and 197.] Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. paniculata Sm.

(See also Plate 57, Part XIII.)

  • 1a. Juvenile leaf; 1b, juvenile leaf (slightly more advanced); 1c, twig showing mature leaves and buds; 1d, immature fruits, showing staminal rings; 1e, fruits. Asquith, near Hornsby, between Sydney and the Hawkesbury River (W. F. Blakely).
  • 2a. Buds; 2b, anthers. On the main road, near Gordon Railway Station, North Shore Line, Sydney (W. F. Blakely).
  • 3. Juvenile leaf, not in its earliest stage. Kedron, near Brisbane, Queensland (C. T. White).
  • 4. Mature leaves and fruits. Mount Gravatt, near Brisbane (C. T. White).
  • 5a. Mature leaf; 5b, buds; 5c, fresh anthers. From the same set of specimens, some of the dried anthers precisely match 2b. Waterworks-road, Brisbane (J. L. Boorman).

Plate 197.

Plate 197: EUCALYPTUS PANICULATA Sm. [See also Plates 57 and 196.] (E. Fergusoni R. T. Baker, Fig. 1, E. Nanglei R. T. Baker, Figs. 2 and 3. both drawn from the types.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. paniculata Sm.

(See also Plates 57, Part XIII, and 196.)

E. Fergusoni R. T. Baker.

  • 1a. Mature leaf; 1b, mature leaf and immature buds; 1c, fruits, markedly ribbed. Bulladelah, N.S.W. (L. C. Maxwell). The type.

I match E. Fergusoni perfectly with specimens of E. paniculata. My attempts to separate them have been most painstaking.

E. Nanglei R. T. Baker.

  • 2a. Juvenile leaf; 2b, mature leaf and immature buds; 2c, fruits. E. Nanglei has, like E. paniculata, the staminal ring, and in this respect shows some affinity to E. mellidora A. Cunn., E. sideroxylon A. Cunn. Morrissett, N.S.W. (C. F. Laseron). The type.
  • 3a. Mature leaves and buds; 3b, mature leaf, buds and expanding flowers; 3c, anthers, different views. Lindfield and Nowra, a mixed parcel, as received from Mr. Baker. Lindfield is a railway station on the North Shore Line, near Sydney; Nowra is on the Shoalhaven River, about 94 miles south of Sydney. (R. T. Baker and L. G. Irby). Co-types.

I am not able to separate E. Nanglei from E. Fergusoni, nor either of them from E. paniculata.

Plate 198.

Plate 198: EUCALYPTUS DECORTICANS (F.M. Bailey) Maiden (1). E. CULLENI R. H. Cambage (2). Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. decorticans sp. nov.

(Syn. E. siderophloia Benth., forma decorticans F. M. Bailey.)

  • 1a, 1b, 1c, the three youngest leaves I can find. They show that the juvenile leaves are narrow and do not differ in venation from the mature leaves. 1d, mature leaves and buds; 1e, anthers, 1f, fruits (Eidsvold, Queensland (Dr. T. L. Bancroft). The type.

E. Culleni R. H. Cambage.

  • 2a. Juvenile leaves; 2b, buds; 2c, front and back view of anther; 2d, mature leaves and fruits. Alma-den, North Queensland (R. H. Cambage, No. 3905). The type.

Plate 199.

Plate 199: EUCALYPTUS BEYERI R. T. Baker (1,2). [See also Fig. 21, Plate 57.] Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.

E. Beyeri R. T. Baker.

(See also figure 21, Plate 57, Part XIII, as E. paniculata.)

  • 1a. Twig with buds; 1b, fruits. St. Mary's (about 30 miles west of Sydney). (R. T. Baker.) The type.
  • 2a. Juvenile leaf; 2b, twig with buds and flowers; 2c, twig with fruits. About 1 mile south-east of Kingswood Station (close to St. Mary's) and ¼ mile from the Great Western road (W. F. Blakely and J. L. Boorman).

Figs. 3 and 4 I at present look upon as intermediate between E. Beyeri and E. paniculata. It will be observed that the leaves are broader and coarser than those of E. Beyeri, but the trees were high, and they appeared to be a second growth, abundant on the branches, and therefore perhaps abnormal. E. Beyeri requires further investigation both as regards its botanical characters and timber.

  • 3a. Mature leaves; 3b, buds and flowers; 3c, staminal ring, which is very deciduous; 3d, anthers. A very large and very old tree in a paddock about ¼ mile north-west of St. Mary's Station (W. F. Blakely and J. L. Boorman.)
  • 4a, 4b, 4c. Leaves of various sizes; 4d, buds. Anthers the same as 3d. On the Richmond road, ¼ mile from St. Mary's Station (W. F. Blakely and J. L. Boorman).
