Abstract

"Of the genus Eucalyptus twelve species have hitherto been
recorded from Tasmania, and as fairly well marked, three of
these being endemic, the otbers occurring also on the mainland
of Australia. The species peculiar to the island are Eucalyptus
cordata, E. urnigera, and E. vernicosa-all three linked together
by several characteristics so that it is not always easy to
refer occasional aberrant or transitory forms to the species
from which they originated.
In conclusion I may add, that the sma1l leaved
dwarf alpine state of E. vernicosa is now known also from
Mount Arrowsmith (Gulliver), Mount Norfolk (Eminett), and
Mount Sorell (Milligan)."
