Allocasuarina crassa (Casuarinaceae) not in the Students Flora

Allocasuarina crassa (Cape Pillar She-Oak) is only found on the south-eastern tip of the Tasman Peninsula (near Cape Pillar). It is closely related to A. monilifera, A. zephyrea and  A. duncanii , but is easily distinguished from these species by its thick branchlets with hairy furrows. It is a tough shrub found in coastal heath. It ranges from a very low growing plant in wind-blasted heaths to a small tree. Large numbers of hybrids between A. crassa and A. monilifera occur part of the way out towards Cape Pillar
