Botany picture #125: Rubus gunnianus

Rubus gunnianus (Rosaceae), Tasmania, 2013. If you saw this plant for the first time, would you guess that it is a member of the raspberry or blackberry genus Rubus? Probably not. Its congeners are generally large, prickly shrubs, and this is a herb, and a really tiny one at that. See it in fruit on this page if you are interested.
