Key to Tasmanian Dicots
1. Goodenia ovata
2. Scaevola albida
3. Velleia montana
About fifteen species of this family are native to Tasmania. They include both shrubs (some species of the genus Goodenia) and herbs from several genera. They occur in a wide range of habitats - from saltmarsh to wet and dry forests to alpine herbfields. The flowers are asymmetrical and the corolla lobes of most genera are more or less triangular. All genera except Selliera have corolla lobes with thinner wings on either side. In Velleia the ovary is superior, in the other genera it is inferior.
