'Extinct' plant found in NSW


www.news.com.au

A PLANT believed to have been extinct for more than a century has been discovered by a forest worker in NSW.

The Euphrasia Arguta, a member of the foxglove family, was found by NSW Forests worker Graham Marshall in Nundle State Forest, in the state's north-west, Primary Industries Minister Ian Macdonald said today.

The species was last recorded in June 1904 near Tamworth, Mr Macdonald said.

How many other allegedly extinct species are still waiting to be rediscovered?

I guess the big one, as far as Aussies are concerned, is finding living specimens of the Tasmanian Tiger.

This story might give the Tiger hunters some hope.

Wow, this is good news, always good to hear of someone finding an extinct species, flora or fauna.

As for the Tasmanian TIger, I really doubt it.....yet some piece of me still wants to believe it is out there. It was a beautiful species of animal killed by over hunting and from the introduction of other animals
