Key to Tasmanian Dicots
Athrotaxis (Cupressaceae) 1:6
Tasmania has two native species of Athrotaxis. These are both species of relatively undisturbed, cool, wet regions of central and western Tasmania. King Billy Pine (A. selaginoides) is a rainforest tree (rarely reaching into the alpine zone) with spreading leaves. Pencil Pine (A. cupressoides) is a subalpine-alpine tree or shrub (rarely found as a montane rainforest tree). The naturally occurring hybrid of these species (A. Xlaxifolia) has sometimes been recognised as a separate species.
