Abstract

We have in Tasmania representatives of only two genera
belonging to this family, Oenothera and Epilobium.
Of the first genus we have only one species. It
is a small herb of very restricted distribution, and was
described by Sir J. D. Hooker in the Flora Tasmaniae.
It was gathered by R. Gunn in marshy land about Marlborough
in 1841, and does not appear to have been recorded
since till the early part of this year, when it was
found by G. Weindorfer and Dr. Sutton in the vicinity
of Middlesex Plains. It is confined to the western portion
of Tasmania, and neither it nor any other native
member of the genus has yet been recorded from Australia
or New Zealand. Bentham considered this species
to be very close to, if not identical with, O. dentata,
Cav., which is a native of Western America, extending
from South Chili to California.
Includes list of species and plates.
