|Geranium solanderi, Namadgi National Park, above Canberra.|
|Glossy Black-Cockatoo Calyptorhynchus lathami, named by Temminck for English ornithologist|
John Latham in 1807, a fact he'd apparently forgotten 14 years later when he tried to name it again for Solander!
|Dryandra sp. (at least for now, perhaps) near Albany.|
|Wahlenbergia stricta (and visitor), family Campanulaceae, Canberra.|
Goran Wahlenberg, who German Heinrich Schrader commemorated with the name in 1821, was a botanist and
medical professor who specialised in Arctic plants.
|Baeckea utilis, Kosciuszko National Park.|
|Westringia rigida, Nullarbor Plain, western South Australia.|
Westringia was named for Johan Westring by English botanist John Smith.
Westring mixed his royal caring duties with studies of lichens.
|Massed Frankenia sp., in dry lake bed near Mount Magnet, inland Western Australia.|
The genus is widely spread in Mediterranean parts of the world, though the majority are Australian.
|Gahnia grandis, Cradle Mountain National Park, Tasmania.|
The saw sedges have savage little silicon teeth along the edges of the leaves,
which I'm sure is no reflection on Henry Gahn for whom they are named.
