Eucalyptus latisinensis is a member of the White Mahogany group. Eucalypts in the White Mahogany group are all fully rough barked. It is helpful to understand this group while working around the taxa from which it is comprised. A treatment of the White Mahogany group is also available from Euclid, 4th Ed. and the link is provided below.

E.latisinensis is generous with seed in addition to being generally low in stature which makes collection extremely efficient.
