For a fine specimen of this, likewise accompanied by a drawing, I am indebted to W. T. Aiten, Esq. It was received at Kew from Francis Henchman , Esq. in 1824: the seeds having a short time previously been gathered, on the South-Western Shores of New Holland, between Cape Arid and Lucky Bay, by Mr. Baxter.

It is nearly allied to B. marcescens, (already figured at Tab. 2803 of the present work) between which and B. attenuata it is placed by Mr. Brown. At Kew Gardens its flowering season is August.
