Key to Tasmanian Dicots

Archeria eriocarpa (Ericaceae) 2:452

Archeria eriocarpa is slender shrub that grows in the understory of rainforest in many parts of western and southern Tasmania. It is very similar to A. hirtella, but has thinner leaves. Both species can have white or pink flowers. It can also be confused with the rainforest Trochocarpa species, but A. hirtella has only one vein visible on the underside of the leaf, whereas the Trochocarpa species have about 5-7.
