|Rattlepod Pea Crotolaria cunninghamii, south-west Queensland.|
This most striking big pea grows on bare desert dunes.
It too was named for Cunningham after his death, by his old patron,the great Robert Brown.
|Bangalow Palm Archontophoenix cunninghamiana.|
Named long after Cunningham's death by the German botanist Heinrich Wendland.
(Apologies for the muddy old slide - I must get up there again some time!)
|Ancient Myrtle Beech Nothofagus cunninghamii; a magnificent old temperate rainforest|
tree in Weldborough Forest, Tasmania.
Another one named by William Hooker to honour Cunningham.
|Cunningham's Skink Egernia cunninghamii, a common colonial-dwelling big skink which inhabits|
mostly rock outcrops in our part of the world.
Named in 1832 by (I am almost certain) zoologist John Edward Gray, later of the British Museum.
