Stockwellia

Stockwellia (Stockwellia quadrifida) was discovered relatively recently and formally described for science in 2002. It is is known from only two locations deep in the north Queensland rainforest. These forest giants are relicts of wetter times dating back more than 10 million years – but related to the eucalypts (family Myrtaceae) that have prospered as Australia became a drier continent.
