The western wattlebird (Anthochaera lunulata) from the honeyeater family is endemic to south-western Australia. It occurs toward the coast from Israelite Bay north to Geraldton, and inland to the Stirling Range, Lake Grace and Northam.
Eucalyptus synandra, commonly known as Jingymia Mallee, is found as several small populations on sandplains and rises between Geraldton and Mount Marshall in the Eastern Wheatbelt. 27 separate populations have been identified, containing about 1200 individual plants; mostly between north of Morawa to around Koorda. It is classified as ‘Threatened Flora’.
It typically grows with an open canopy to 10 metres in height. It has a smooth white or grey bark that shreds in ribbons to reveal pink and brownish new bark.
