Exocarpus humifusa, R. Br., is a small prostrate shrub
found on Tasmanian mountain tops. Three other members
of the genus are found in the State, and these extend to the
mainland. The most familiar is the native cherry, which is
common in the eastern states, but the Western Australian
record of which is doubtful. The family Santalaceae, to
which Exocarpus belongs, is noted for the root parasitic
habits of its members.
