Cyathea cunninghamii (Cyatheaceae)

Cyathea cunninghamii (slender tree fern) is one of Tasmania's three tree fern species (all are native). It is very rare, and only found in small populations in gullies widely spaced around the east, north and west coasts. Its habit is very distinctive - very tall and slender.

It sometimes hybridises with the more common C. australis to produce the plants called Cyathea Xmarcescens.
