Cyathea cooperi. AUSTRALIAN TREE FERN. Australia
CYATHEACEAE (Cyathea family)

This tree fern is similar in appearance to Dicksonia. A distinguishing feature is that the spore-bearing organs under the leaflets are closer to the midrib rather than being closer to the leaf margin as with Dicksonia. The comparatively smooth trunk is textured with oval leaf scars. There is a row along the north side of Green Library.
