      These belong to the N. O. Leguminose. Under the name of "Kino Australiense" Allen gives symptoms of "Red gum." These are nearly identical with those obtained by F. Kopp, and recorded under Angophora.

      Dry, hard evacuations, accompanied with blood, diarrhoea, headache, nausea, flatulent distension, and colicky pains.
      For nearly a week there was obstinate constipation, then nausea, sickness and diarrhoea, with vertigo and debility.
      Pains and tenesmus only better by lying down flat on the face. Lippe gives under Kino (origin not stated) "Stitches in ear (right).
      Suppuration after inflammation of ear.")
