Two plant species thought to be extinct rediscovered in Australia


This video about Australia is called Cape York – One of the last great wild places on Earth.

From Wildlife Extra:

Two plant species thought to have been extinct since the late 1800s have been rediscovered in Far North Queensland.

The two plants are:

Rhaphidospora cavernarum – a large herb 0.5 to 1.5m high; flower white with purplish markings in the throat; and

Teucrium ajugaceum ( a native mint ) – a semi-prostrate herb with trailing stems up to 20 cm tall; flowers pale mauve or white with mauve markings.
