Trochocarpa disticha (Ericaceae) 2:430

Trochocarpa disticha is an uncommon rainforest/wet forest understorey plant found only in the far south-eastern part of Tasmania. The leaves are alternate, but usually arranged so that the shoot is more or less flattened. 

 It closely resembles T. cunninghamii except that it is a large shrub with larger leaves. It could also be confused with T. gunnii (which has smaller leaves and a glabrous corolla).
