Australian biosecurity officers have destroyed historic plants specimens on loan from France after a paperwork mix-up. A box of daisies from the 1850’s had been sent to Brisbane from the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.

The pressed plants were incinerated because accompanying documents were filled out incorrectly. Australian quarantine authorities want to know why and want a review on the incident.

They say the plants were French and that the plants were accidentally destroyed in March because of missing information. They were upset and now the flowers are irreplaceable. They say that the flowers come from a habitat that no longer exists. Those collections of flowers may have been the last remaining flowers of that species and were highly valuable due to their extreme rarity.
