Eucalyptus apothalassica

Scientific NameEucalyptus apothalassica
CategoriesTree
Common Name(s)Inland White Mahogany
FamilyMyrtaceae

Description

"Tree to 20 m tall. Forming a lignotuber." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)

Notes

Eucalyptus apothalassica occurs slightly inland where annual rainfalls are lower than similar trees such as E.acmenoides and E.carnea. Usually on sandstone. Its distribution is somewhat limited and its usage in revegetation projects follows suit. Nonetheless, being one of the white mahoganies, its instructive for the seed collector to observe this tree when the chance arises. The links below provide information covering variations in leaf morphology etc which can be used to differentiate among similar eucalypts.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"...widely distributed in south-eastern Queensland from Isla Gorge and Eidsvold, south to the Darling Downs area and into the adjacent parts of New South Wales" (Brooker, M.I.H., and Kleinig, D.A., 2004)
