Abstract

A few notes on the discovery of a new Eucalypt may be of
some interest to the Fellows of the Royal Society, especially
the introductory remarks, for whioh I am greatly indebted to
our illustrious honorary member Baron von Mueller who
thus forwards his determination on what he considers a most
important botanical discovery.
During a recent exploration, for the Government, of the
country situated between the townships o£ New Norfolk and·
Victoria, au Eucalypt which had never come under my observation during any of my numerous wanderings through the
unexplored portions of Tasmania, and one which I could not
find described in the Flora of the Colonies, was first observed
on a saddle of the dividing range between the Huon and Derwent
watersheds.
