Picture [d-5] is yet another of the Dampiera spp., which I find difficult to identify just from the books. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Stirling Ranges, north of Albany, WA, October, 2001.  18 kB 
Picture [d-6] is yet another beautiful picture of one of the Dampiera spp. which I would like to identify more accurately. Near the Porongorup Ranges north of Albany, WA, October, 2001.  32 kB 
Picture [d-7], a Dampiera which needs better identification.  Near Albany Windfarm, WA, October, 2001.   19 kB 
Picture [d-8] of a specimen of the Dampiera spp., which lend such a characteristic appearance to the wonderful wildflower palette of the WA landscape. Karlgarin region in the vicinity of Hyden, WA, October, 2001.  45 kB 
Picture [d-9] of a nice shining white bloom which I think to be Dicrastylis fulva, but I am not sure about it.  Nannup-Pemberton road, WA, October, 2001.  25 kB 
Picture [d-10] of another plant thought to be Dicrastylis fulva in the floriferous Stirlings.  Stirling Ranges, north of Albany, WA, October, 2001.  17 kB 
Picture [d-11], yet another shot, closer-up, of probably Dicrastylis fulva again. Stirling Ranges, WA, October, 2001.   13 kB 
Picture [e-1] of a Eucalyptus spp. which I think is Jarrah, but I am not sure. I'm sure some clever viewer can tell at a glance. Anyone? Stirling Ranges, WA, October, 2001.  18 kB 
Oligarrhena micrantha
Picture [f-1] shows Oligarrhena micrantha, a unique plant with pale yellow feathery flowers which grows only in the south of WA. It is a member of the Ericaceae, heath-like plants. Now identified by myself. Near the "Frenchman's Hat", Cape Le Grand National Park, east of Esperance, WA, October, 2001.  21 kB 
Picture [g-1] shows what appears to be Gompholobium scabrum syn. Burtonia scabra, called "Painted Lady", or perhaps Gompholobium villosa , a Stirling Range variant.  Stirling Ranges, WA, October, 2001.  23 kB 
Picture [g-2] shows this bright red flower which might be a Grevillea or a Hakea, and I would be glad of any suggestions.  Kalbarri, WA, September, 2001.   18 kB 
Grevillea quercifolia (Oak-leafed Grevillea)
Picture [g-3] now identified as Grevillea quercifolia (Oak-leafed Grevillea), by courtesy of W. Quarles. Near the Lakes Cave entrance, Boyanup, WA, September, 2001.  19 kB 
Picture [g-4] is likely to be one of the Grevillea species, but I'm not sure which one.  Stirling Ranges, WA, October, 2001.  15 kB 
Picture [g-5] is a splendid specimen of the Grevillea species on the roadside as we started our homeward journey back through Norseman. Salmon Gums, WA, October, 2001.  21 kB 
Picture [h-1] shows what I think might be the "Frog Hakea", Hakea nitida, but I'd like confirmation, if possible. I wonder why it's called the "Frog Hakea"? Stirling Ranges, WA, October, 2001.   18 kB 
Picture [h-2] shows one of the very common Hibbertia species, also called "Guinea Flowers", which are widespread in WA, with other species common around Australia. I suspect close examination of the flower structure is needed in some cases, so I'm not sure of the species here. Western Flora Caravan Park, near Eneabba, WA, September, 2001.  18 kB 
Picture [h-3], another of the Hibbertia species looks similar to the one shown above.  Alexander Morrison National Park, a particularly rich wildflower region near Coorow, WA, September, 2001.  20 kB 
Picture [h-4], another Hibbertia photograph which has a different appearance to the ones shown directly above. Can anyone tell me which one it is? Stirling Ranges, WA, September, 2001.  29 kB 
Picture [h-5] shows a flower appearing to be one of the hibiscus-like flowers, such as Hibiscus or Alyogyne, but I can't see it in the books I have. It was growing near the car park at Monkey Mia, so it might not be natural to the area, or even to WA. Monkey Mia, Shark Bay, WA, September, 2001.   42 kB 
Picture [h-6] is a beautiful picture of this purple flower with a red centre and divided leaves. Could be a Hibiscus or Alyogyne, but the leaves are different to any in my books. In the vicinity of Yardie Creek, Northwest Cape Range, near Exmouth, WA, September, 2001.  14 kB 
Picture [i-1] is probably an Ipomoea spp. escaped from a garden, or perhaps Bonamia sericea.  Roadside stop between Collie and Donnybrook, WA, September, 2001.  36 kB
