Abstract

At the instigation of Baron F. von Mueller I beg to lay before the Society specimens of a species of Hakea, not hitherto recorded in the Tasmanian Flora. From the Baron's letter, which I send herewith, it seems that this plant is found in Gippsland, Victoria. I found it at George's Bay on my first visit in May, 1875, where it is of very frequent occurrence in marshy places, growing to a height of twelve (12) to fifteen (15) feet, or even higher. These shrubs occur also on Flinders Island, Bass' Straits, forming occasionally scrubs in wet places, and growing very closely together to a height of at least twenty (20) feet.
