Athrotaxis selaginoides is a species of Athrotaxis, endemic to Tasmania in Australia, where it grows at 400-1,120 m altitude. In its habitat in the mountains snow in winter is very usual. It is often called King Billy Pine or King William Pine, although it is not a pine. It is an evergreen coniferous tree growing to 20-30 m tall, with a trunk up to 1.5 m diameter. The leaves are claw-like, 7-18 mm long and 3-4 mm broad, arranged spirally on the shoots. The seed cones are globose, 15-30 mm diameter, with 20-30 spirally-arranged scales; they are mature about six months after pollination. The pollen cones are 4-5 mm more
