Nothofagus gunnii (Nothofagaceae) 3:647

Nothofagus gunnii (The Fagus) is Tasmania's only winter deciduous species.  It is a major component of subalpine rainforest and alpine conifer heath. It has small (generally <2 cm long), light green, alternate leaves. The veins lead to the gaps between the round teeth, and the leaf lamina bulges up between the major veins.
