Dodonaea viscosa (Sapindaceae) 1:122

Dodonaea viscosa (Native Hop) is a very common and widespread native species that occurs in dry to damp sclerophyll forests, and also near the coast. It is often a small tree. The leaves are sticky on both surfaces and are typically widest near the tip, blunt or with a short, soft point (a mucro), and are often about 5 cm long and about 1cm wide. 

The distinctive three-winged fruit are unique to this species and its less common relative, D. filiformis.
