Abstract

The monthly evening meeting of the Society was held on Tuesday, the
10th May, Mr. Justin Browne in the chair.
The Secretary read a paper by Baron von Mueller, K.C.M.G., M.D.,
F.R.S., entitled "Suggestions for an extended elucidation of the Plants of
Tasmania."
Mr. Stephens read notes on a species of Eucalyptus (E. haemastoma),
not hitherto recorded in the Flora of Tasmania, with its identification by
Baron von Mueller. This tree is commonly known as the Gum-topped
Stringy Bark.
Mr. Johnston was glad that Mr. Stephens had devoted his attention so
closely to the study of our Eucalypts, for it was only by a close special
study of some particular family or group that we could now hope to
improve or add to our existing knowledge. The proper classification of
the Eucalypti is a very difficult matter, and the exact determination of
closely allied species is rendered still more perplexing on account of the
extreme variability due to local environments.
the same habitats.
The Secretary read a paper by Charles E. Barnard, M.D., etc., etc.
"On Auriferous Country and Gold-bearing Rocks."
