|Gunn's Willow-herb Epilobium gunnianum Family Onagraceae, Namadgi National Park near Canberra.|
The type specimen was collected in Tasmania, and named by German Epilobium specialist Heinrich Haussknecht.
|Deciduous Beech Nothofagus gunni Family Nothofagaceae, Cradle Mountain NP, Tasmania.|
This is one of the very few deciduous plants native to southern Australia.
It was named in Gunn's honour by his friend Joseph Hooker.
|The orchid genera Gunnarorchis and Gunnia were named for Gunn, but they|
have since respectively been subsumed into Dendrobium (above) and Sarcochilus (below).
|Baeckea gunniana Family Myrtaceae, Cradle Mountain NP, Tasmania.|
This shrub is also found in montane bogs on the mainland but was probably collected originally by Gunn,
and named for him by German botanist Johannes Schauer.
