The floral anatomy of the 12 species of Acrotriche (Epacridaceae) has been examined in an effort to determine the extent of specific differences. It was found that these differences are not as marked as in the leaves. Identification of the species based on the floral anatomy relies to a large extent on the arrangement of the tissues in the ovary in conjunction with the presence or absence of hairs. A key to the species based on the floral anatomy is presented, as well as individual specific descriptions.
