A specimen of the European doublegee was forwarded to the Government Botanist this year by Mr. G. L. Throssell, Agricultural Adviser at Geraldton, who obtained it from a property at Mendel.
The plant differs from the common doublegee principally in the broad base of the fruit and the strongly recurved spines, the ordinary common doublegee having a fruit which tapers at the base and carries straight spines.
