Jedda multicaulis (Jedda multicaulis)


Jedda is a monotypic plant genus in the Thymelaeaceae family, its only species being J. multicaulis. The species is an upright, evergreen bush indigenous to tropical Australia, discovered in the early 1980s on the Cape York Peninsula in northern Queensland, in an area of grassy forest land. The full extent of its distribution is unknown. The name Jedda is a toponym from Jedda Creek, which is close to where the type specimen was collected from.
