The discovery of the genus Wollemia, comprising the single species W. nobilis, in a gorge not far west of Sydney, Australia, is the most remarkable and exciting botanical story of recent times. The similarity between extant and fossilised leaves of Wollemia has earned it the status of a living fossil – but it also qualifies as a ‘new tree’!
