Endiandra limnophila B.Hyland
Hyland, B.P.M. (1989) Australian Systematic Botany 2: 238. Type: B. Hyland 12377: Between Lockerbie and Somerset, 8.xii.1982 (QRS, holotypus).
Twigs terete, clothed in straight, appressed, pale brown hairs. Leaf blades about 5.5-12.5 x 3-5 cm, usually somewhat glaucous on the underside (at least when young), clothed in straight, appressed, pale brown hairs. Foveoles usually present, 3-6 per leaf, occasionally fewer. Midrib flush with the upper surface. Petioles flat on the upper surface. Oil dots visible with a lens.
Flowers opening quite widely, the tepals becoming almost horizontal at anthesis. Tepals about 0.7-1.4 mm long. Staminal glands six, free from one another. Staminodes three, differentiated into a head and stalk.
First pair of leaves elliptic to obovate, about 50-65 x 24-27 mm, green on the underside. At the tenth leaf stage: a few scattered hairs may be present along midrib on the upper surface of the leaf blade; oil dots small, visible with a lens.
Distribution and Ecology
This species has no commercial value as it does not grow large enough to produce millable logs. Wood specific gravity 0.68. Hyland (1989).
