"Epicuticular Wax Crystals of Wollemia nobilis"

This one is very technical

"Tube-type waxes containing substantial
amounts of nonacosane-10-ol are dominant in the
Gymnosperm genera (e.g Ginkgo, Taxus, Picea, Pinus or
Abies) and have also been found in the Angiosperm
genera (e.g. Chelidonium majus, Papaver somniferum,
Prunus domestica or Rosa spp.)"


On a side note, for me it is also interesting that the co-author of this research, Simona Dragota, is one conational of mine
