Memorandum

From

CONSERVATOR OF FORESTS,

adelaide.

To

Baron F. Von Mueller., K.C.M.G.

Government Botanist

Melbourne.

 

My dear Sir Ferdinand,

I find the Sugar Gum (Euc. Corynocalyx) leaves assume a very long and narrow form in the northern portion of the Flinders Range.3 The enclosed is taken from a tree N. E. of Port Augusta.4 Might we take this to be a distinct variety or merely a chance growth?

I send you my Annual Report 80-81.5 in which you will observe that I acknowledge your valuable information re - our Eucalypti.

Yours very truly

J. E. Brown

 

P.S.

Where is "Marble Range" where you first observed E. Corynocalyx?6
