    Lasiopetalum micranthum (Sterculiaceae) 1:90

Lasiopetalum micranthum is an endemic species of shrub found in dry forests along the east coast. It has long narrow leaves like the rarer L. baueri, but the leaves have the secondary veins obviously depressed, the sepals (the obvious petal-like structures) are narrow and the bracts (the brown structures sometimes confused with sepals) are not curved up (see picture).
