Exocarpus humifusa, R. Br., is a small prostrate shrub found on Tasmanian mountain tops. Three other members of the genus are found in the State, and these extend to the mainland. The most familiar is the native cherry, which is common in the eastern states, but the Western Australian record of which is doubtful. The family Santalaceae, to which Exocarpus belongs, is noted for the root parasitic habits of its members.
