Abstract

Zieria veronica,I first discovered this addition to our list of the Tasmanian Flora in October, 1879, near the Ruby Tin Mining Company's, claim, George's Bay. There were two small specimens, one bearing a blossom, growing in very light, sandy soil, in company with Astroloma pinifolia, and other more common plants. I made it out to belong to the order Rutacece, but could not identify it with any of the Tasmanian species of that order, recorded in the Rev. Mr. Spicer's handbook, and felt sure that it was an addition, to our Flora, if not altogether a new plant.
