Examples of "chartacea"
is a bloodwood native to the Northern Territory
German naturalist and Government Botanist for Victoria Ferdinand von Mueller originally described "Atractocarpus chartaceus" in 1860 as "Gardenia
", before giving it the name "Randia
" in 1875 by which it was known for many years. The specific epithet "
" refers to its thin and papery leaves. Then in 1999, the genus was revised by botanists Christopher Puttock and Christopher Quinn and the Narrow-leaved Gardenia gained its current binomial name.
" grows as a tree up to tall with a trunk diameter of up to . The leaves are chartaceous.
" is endemic to Borneo where it is confined to Sarawak. Its habitat is lowland mixed dipterocarp forest.

is a species of "Heliconia" native to tropical South America (Brazil, Venezuela, French Guiana, Suriname, Guyana, Ecuador and Peru).
is a tree of Borneo in the family Anisophylleaceae. The specific epithet "" is from the Latin meaning "papery", referring to the leaves.

is a shrub or tree belonging to the genus "Acacia" and the subgenus "Phyllodineae". It is native to an area along the south coast in the Mid West and the Gascoyne regions of Western Australia.
This nudibranch is found on a colony of the red sponge, "Antho
" (family Microcionidae) on which it presumably feeds. Most other species of "Rostanga" also feed on sponges of the family Microcionidae.
is a rare species of flowering plant in the pink family known by the common names papery Whitlow-wort and paper nailwort. It is endemic to Florida in the United States. There are two subspecies of the plant; ssp. "
" occurs in Central Florida, especially the Lake Wales Ridge, and ssp. "minima" is native to the Florida Panhandle. The two subspecies are geographically separated and do not occur together. Both are included on the federal Endangered Species List, on which the species is designated threatened.
" is a common upland species of disturbed sites, young secondary forest, and abandoned cultivation, and is often found near human habitation. It is pollinated by hermit hummingbirds, whose curved beaks are well adapted to probe the curved flowers for nectar, their main food source. Some species such as the rufous-breasted hermit also use the plant for nesting.
The plant is limited to seven counties in Central Florida, where it grows in a number of habitat types. It is known from various kinds of Florida scrub habitat, hammocks, and sandhills. The habitat types are different in many ways but they all have dry, well-drained, low-nutrient sandy soils and they are all maintained by wildfire. The plant is present on Lake Wales Ridge, home to many rare Central Florida endemic plants. It grows alongside "Polygala lewtonii", "Polygonella myriophylla", "Polygonella basiramia", "Paronychia
" spp. "
", "Persea humilis", "Liatris ohlingerae", "Hypericum cumulicola", "Conradina brevifolia", "Calamintha ashei", and "Bonamia grandiflora". The plant is relatively widespread when compared with other rare local plants, but most of the populations are small and some are made up of only female individuals.
The plants the refuge was designed to protect are the snakeroot ("Eryngium cuneifolium"), scrub blazing star ("Liatris ohlingerae"), Carter's mustard ("Warea carteri"), papery Whitlow-wort ("Paronychia
"), Florida bonamia ("Bonamia grandiflora"), scrub lupine ("Lupinus aridorum"), highlands scrub hypericum ("Hypericum cumulicola"), Garett's mint ("Dicerandra christmanii"), scrub mint ("Dicerandra frutescens"), pygmy fringetree ("Chionanthus pygmaeus"), wireweed ("Polygonella basiramia"), sandlace ("Polygonella myriophylla"), Florida ziziphus ("Ziziphus celata"), and scrub plum ("Prunus geniculata").
This plant is a member of the Florida scrub plant community. It occurs in scrub dominated by Florida rosemary, sand pine, other pines, and oaks. The soil is almost entirely composed of sand and it holds little water or nutrients. The plant occurs in openings in the scrub which are maintained by periodic wildfires. Other plants in this habitat include "Calamintha ashei", "Cnidoscolus stimulosus", "Eryngium cuneifolium", "Euphorbia floridana", "Hypericum cumulicola", "Lechea cernua", "Licania michauxii", "Paronychia
", "Polanisia tenuifolia", "Polygonella polygama", "Selagniella arenicola", and "Stipulicida setacea".
This plant grows in small openings in the Florida scrub, where it is an early successional species, likely increasing in number after wildfire clears an overgrown area. It grows in white sand scrub. The Central Florida subspecies, ssp. "
", occurs in open areas dominated by rosemary and sand pine, sometimes colonizing recently disturbed habitat. Other plants and lichens in the area include "Bonamia grandiflora", "Hypericum cumulicola", "Polygonella basaramia", "Cladonia perforata", "Eryngium cuneifolium", and "Liatris ohlingerae". The northern subspecies, ssp. "minima" occurs in the white sand edges of ponds and sinkholes in karst substrate. It is present in Bay and Washington Counties. Though limited in distribution and threatened by the loss of its natural ecosystem, the plant can be locally common in fragments of remaining habitat.
The plant occurs in Florida scrub habitat on deep, dry, white sand in clearings among sand pines ("Pinus clausa") and other scrub flora. Other rare plants in the region include highlands scrub hypericum ("Hypericum cumulicola"), papery whitlow-wort ("Paronychia
"), scrub plum ("Prunus geniculata"), and scrub lupine ("Lupinus aridorum"). It is adapted to the occasional wildfire that naturally occurs in the scrub habitat. Fire clears brush and heavy forest canopy which shade out the morning glory, providing the clearings that it requires. Fire suppression efforts are generally detrimental to the species. Controlled burns and other methods of clearing excessive vegetation are part of the recovery plan. Where the morning glory is provided appropriate habitat, it can become plentiful and even abundant. It has the capacity to introduce itself into newly cleared, sandy plots and take hold vigorously; however, it does not tolerate much disturbance once established.
" is a herbaceous plant, with paired large oblong leaves like those of the banana. It can grow to 7–8 m in height, and plants can form large clumps with age. The flowering stems are pendulous. The bright pink color of the flower bracts is rare among heliconias, making it very easy to identify. The conspicuous pink part of the large and showy hanging inflorescences is actually the waxy bracts, (modified leaves), with the small green true flowers half-hidden inside. It has blue-black fruits that contain 3 very hard seeds, which are capable of extended dormancy in the soil. The fruits are eaten by a variety of birds, including tanagers and thrushes.
This is often an annual herb, though ssp. "
" may be a short-lived perennial. It produces a short, spreading stem that branches many times to take on a mat-like form. The stem is no more than 20 centimeters long. It is lined with occasional small, leathery leaves which are oblong to triangular in form and just a few millimeters long. The ends of the forking stem branches are dense, highly divided cymes of many tiny flowers. The flowers generally have five sepals, stamens, and other parts, but they may have 3 or 4 parts, a trait unique among the North American "Paronychia" species. The sepals are brownish or purplish fading to thinned, papery, whitish or translucent edges. The fruit is a minute utricle measuring half a millimeter long. The two subspecies differ in size; ssp. "minima" has a smaller caudex and smaller inflorescences.
