EXPLANATION OF PLATE 183.

Plate 183: Western Cork Tree. (Hakea lorea, R.Br.) Lithograph by Margaret Flockton.



  • A. Twig showing leaves which are about 26 inches long. (Collected by Robert Brown in north coastal Queensland, and typical for the species.)
  • B. Raceme of flowers. (Bouldercombe, Queensland, G. Smith, Herb. Queensland.)
  • C. Bud.
  • D. Flower.
  • E. Flower — the stigma slips out of the corolla-tube usually without separating the four lobes, which contain the anthers.
    • (a) Corolla.
    • (b) Ovary.
    • (c) Style.
    • (d) Stigma.
  • F. Portion of flower, corolla removed, showing —
    • (a) Hypogynous gland.
    • (b) Stipitate ovary.
    • (c) Style.
    • (d) Stigma.
  • G. Anther.
  • H. Stigmatic disc.
  • I. Fruit from Ularing, W.A. (Herb. Melb.)
  • K. Winged seed.

This is one of the few drawings which has not been prepared from exclusively, or nearly exclusively, New South Wales material. I have not specimens of the typical form from New South Wales, only of the variety fissifolia from this State, and I trust that publication of this plate will lead to records of New South Wales localities for the species.
