The small order Centrolepideae, an offshoot of Restiaceae, has
its distribution mostly Australian. Tasmania is particularly
fortunate in species numbering 12 out of a total of about 24
that have been described.
The order includes, according to the usually accepted classification,
four genera: Aphelia, Centrolepis (including Alepyrum),
Trithuria, and Gaimardia. Tasmania has long had recorded
good specimens of the first three genera, and I have now the
good fortune of adding a member of the fourth, Gaimardia,
which has hitherto been found only in New Zealand and the
South Seas to S. America. I describe the plant in conjunction with our truly respected
Fellow, Baron von Mueller, and we name it after its first
discoverer, W. Fitzgerald, F.B.H.S.
Gaimardia fitzgeraldi, n. sp.
