  • Type: Bowenia spectabilis Hook.f.
  • Etymology: " accordance with Mr. Hill's desire as well as our own, we have have [sic] attached the name of the present enlightened Governor of Queensland (Sir George F. Bowen, G.C.M.G., Captain and Governor-in-Chief), to the genus, in recognition no less of that officer's position as Governor of the district of Australia, in which the plant was found, than of his liberal encouragement of botany, and of Mr. Hill's exertions in particular."
