Lenbrassia australiana (Lenbrassia)

Lenbrassia australiana

This endemic rainforest shrub/small tree with attractive yellow flowers is restricted in distribution to a few localities in Mt Spurgeon/Mt Lewis and Tully. For what is presumably a mechanically dispersed species, the huge gap in distribution is rather curious.

Featured here is the variety with hairy leaves L. autraliana var. australiana.

About David Tng

I am David Tng, a hedonistic botanizer who pursues plants with a fervour. I chase the opportunity to delve into various aspects of the study of plants. I have spent untold hours staring at mosses and allied plants, taking picture of pollen, culturing orchids in clean cabinets, counting tree rings, monitoring plant flowering times, etc. I am currently engrossed in the study of plant ecology (a grand excuse to see 'anything I can). Sometimes I think of myself as a shadow taxonomist, a sentimental ecologist, and a spiritual environmentalist - but at the very root of it all, a "plant whisperer"!
