Examples of "orites"
Larvae of "Catonephele
" have been found on "Alchornea".
revolutus" is a prominent shrub in alpine and subalpine sclerophyll heath and woodland, commonly occurring alongside "Epacris serpyllifolia", "Baeckea gunniana", "Richea sprengelioides", "Eucalyptus coccifera", "Empodisma minus", "Leptospermum rupestre" and "
acicularis". The two "
" species tend to be roughly similar in their distribution and dominance within the vegetation.
excelsus is a rainforest tree of northern New South Wales and southeast Queensland. Known colloquially as the prickly ash, mountain silky oak or white beefwood, it is a member of the genus "
" within the family Proteaceae.
diversifolia" has a chromosome number of 2n=28, which is consistent with all other species in the tribe Oriteae (includes genus "
" and "Neorites"), substantiating its taxonomic placement.
" is a genus of the Proteaceae family and is one of 12 Tasmanian genera. Within the genus there are nine species, of which seven are Australian endemics. The remaining two species are South American, located in Bolivia and the Chilean Andes respectively. Four Australian endemics, "
milliganii" and "
revolutus", are also endemic to Tasmania. "
diversifolia" was discovered by the Scottish botanist Robert Brown in 1804 and the name was published by the Linnaean Society of London in 1810. The name was derived from the greek word oreites which translates to “mountaineer” as the species was discovered on Tasmanian mountains. The species name "diversifolia" was likely chosen due to the variable nature of the leaves.
is a moth of the Pterophoridae family. It is found in New Zealand.
revolutus" is 1 of 9 species in the genus "
", with 7 endemic to Australia and only 4 in Tasmania. The remaining 2 species reside in the Chilean Andes and Bolivia. Recent phylogenetic work suggests the "
" genus spread over the Gondwanan continent from South America to Australia during the Paleogene, reaching Australia by the Early Oligocene. Fossils of "
revolutus" indistinguishable from contemporary specimens have been recorded in Early Pleistocene sediments from western Tasmania, suggesting the species is at least this old.
is a moth in the Cosmopterigidae family. It is found in California, United States.
The Proteaceae family are well represented in the fossil record due to the leaves having a high resistance to decay and subsequently many have been discovered in Tasmania. It has been suggested that the current distribution of "
" came about through Gondwanan vicariance and fossil evidence dates the arrival in Australia to the early Oligocene. Despite this, vicariance can never be confirmed and evidence of long distance dispersal to contradict the theory may arise in the future. Macrofossils of an extinct close relative of "
diversifolia" from the Early-Middle Pleistocene known as "
truncata" G.J.Jord. as well as macrofossils of all other extant endemic Tasmanian "
" species were documented in Jordan 1995. This suggests that "
diversifolia" evolved sometime after this period.
is a species of sheet weaver found in Central Europe. It was described by Thorell in 1875.
is a species of flea in the family Ceratophyllidae. It was described by Jordan in 1937.
The threatened flora "
milliganii", a member of the proteaceae family, may be located in the range.
The name "
revoluta" (referring to the tightly revolute leaf margins) was first published by the Linnaean Society of London in March 1810 in the paper "On the natural order of plants called Proteaceae" by Robert Brown. However, the orthographic variant "
revolutus" is used just as widely and is often reported to be the more correct species name.
diversifolia (=diversifolius)", commonly known as variable
, is a member of the Proteaceae family and is endemic to Tasmania. The common name stems from the variable form of the leaves which range from entire and linear to serrated and ovate. It is a common shrub in lowland rainforest and subalpine woodland and scrub.
diversifolia" flowers in spring between the months of October and November. Seed is shed from December to February as soon as follicles ripen and dehisce. The seeds of "
diversifolia" have one large terminal wing, suggesting their mode of dispersal is via wind.
The understorey of sub-alpine habitats is typically dominated by woody shrubs of the Ericaceae (genera "Richea", "Epacris" and "Cyathodes") and Proteaceae families ("
revoluta"). Low-lying conifers of the Cupressaceae ("Diselma archerii") and Podocarpaceae ("Microachrys tetragona", "Phaerosphaera hookeriana") are also common in these sclerophyllous heaths.
is a species of plant in the family Myrtaceae, the myrtles. It is a tree endemic to Peninsular Malaysia. It is threatened by habitat loss.
lancifolius" occurs in alpine and subalpine areas of New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory and Victoria in heath and tussock grassland amongst granite rocks.
, the orange-banded shoemaker butterfly, is a species of butterfly found throughout the northern coast of South America and into Central America.
Cool, moist and shady sites are preferred by this species, however "
diversifolia" can tolerate higher light exposure in the subalpine zone by reducing leaf and overall size. It is both frost and snow tolerant. "
diversifolia" is present in multiple floristic communities which often contain dominant and co-dominant species such as "Atherosperma moschatum", "Phyllocladus aspleniifolius, Nothofagus spp., Eucryphia spp. and Leptospermum sp"p."
