582 PLANTS OF NEW SOUTH WALES, PAPERS READ. Plants of New South Wales — No. II. By the Eev. Dr. Woolls, D.D., F.L.S., &o. Series III. CALYCIFLOEiE, (PoVypetala). Of this grand division of plants, which are generally charac-terized by having the stamens and petals inserted on the margin of a thin disk, the order Lcguminosce is by far the most extensive, comprehending in this colony 52 genera and 279 species, exclusive of those which are not indigenous. Amongst the 92 genera common to other parts of Australia, 29 of the Papilionacese, 6 of the Cresalpinieaj, and 5 of the Miinoseze do not occur in N. S. "Wales. Comparing the leguminous plants of Victoria and Queensland (so far as recorded in the Flora) with those of this colony, they stand in the following order : Genera. Species. Queensland . . 73 . . 254 New South Wales ..52 .. 279 Victoria 29 .. 153 Whils, therefore, the genera increase considerably in proceed-ing from Victoria to the Northern parts of Australia, the species, as yet known, do not increase proportionally. As, however, N. S. Wales and Victoria have been more carefully examined than the interior of Queensland, it is highly probable that many species yet remain to be added to the Flora of the latter. The genera, perhaps, may admit of little alteration. By the follow-ing list, it will be seen, that of the genera not represented in N. S. Wales, the greater part occur in Queensland, and are common to India. 1. PAPILIONACE/E. 1. Jamonia, W.A. 4. Burtonia, Q.L., W. andN.A. 2. Brachysema, W. and N.A. 5. Gastrolobium, Q.L., W.A. •').
