Nothofagus gunnii – Common names include Tanglefoot, Deciduous Beech or Fagus. It is the only native deciduous tree in Tasmania and the only cold climate winter-deciduous tree in Australia. The leaves of this highland delight turn gold and deep red in April/May, only in Tasmania. It is considered a paleoendemic species to Tasmania as macrofossils have been discovered within Oligocene sediments both in Tasmania and Antarctica.

This scarf shows various Tasmanian orchids together with many smaller plants, ferns and mosses from the Buttongrass plains, illustrated at varying scales.
