This is one of two 'Norfolk Island Early Botanical Art' stamps.

Plant: Ungeria floribunda


Common-name: Bastard Oak

Growing to around 15 metres tall, it is mostly limited to isolated stands within and immediately
surrounding the Norfolk Island National Park. This species endemic to Norfolk Island, and the
genus Ungeria is found nowhere else in the world.

The original artwork is by convict John Doody who was onboard the ship Admiral Barrington,
captained by William Patterson, which visited Norfolk Island in 1791.
