In order to correct some inaccuracies and omissions from Read's (2012) article, published in the Queensland Review, Volume 19, Issue 1, the author would like to make the following amendments:
On page 76, the term ‘S. tetraptera’ should appear without a capital ‘T’.
It is acknowledged that Bidwill did not name Earina autumnalis, and therefore on pages 76–77, the following sentence should read:
Bidwill took to London the tiny scented Easter orchid Earina autumnalis which he found near Lake Taupo, and was first to collect the herb Scutellaria novae-zelandicae on the Waimea plain outside Nelson.
On page 77, the name of Tucker's company was given incorrectly. The sentence should read:
Tucker started business again in 1848 on George Street, and the company survives today as Tucker Seabrook (Aust.) P/L.
To correct a couple of omissions on page 78, the following bullet point should read:
Rosa chinensis ‘Imogen’ (Camden Park, 1845) is a cluster-flowered hybrid China rose, bred at Camden Park. Macarthur called it a ‘new hybrid, pure white’ in an 1845 letter to John Bailey, Adelaide nurseryman.
On pages 79 and 85, E. ‘Camdeni’ and Erythrina x bidwillii ‘Camdeni’ should read E. x ‘Camdeni’ and Erythrina x bidwillii ‘Camdeni’ respectively, and E. x bidwillii ‘Blakei’ should read Erythrina x bidwillii ‘Blakei’.
On page 79, the correct term ‘Crinum x Amaryllis’ should replace ‘x Crinum Amaryllis’.
On page 82, ‘Ferdinand Mueller’ should replace ‘Baron Ferdinand von Mueller’ as he was not given this title until a later date.
On page 85, ‘species’ should replace the incorrectly spelt ‘specie’.
On page 85, the correct term ‘H.x ‘Sydneyi’ should replace ‘x Sydneyi’.
The author would like to add the following text to the acknowledgements on page 86:
