Scientific NameEucalyptus thozetiana
CategoriesTree
Common Name(s)Napunyah, Thoezet's Box
FamilyMyrtaceae

Description

"Tree to 17 m tall, trunk fluted. Forming a lignotuber. Bark smooth throughout or less commonly with a short stocking of tessellated blackish rough bark. Smooth bark pinkish to creamy white with greyish patches. Small curls or flakes of imperfectly shed bark may be present at times on the otherwise smooth stems." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)

Notes

Some demand is indicated for Eucalypus thozetiana to accomplish mine site rehabilitation however it almost never is collected and sold. The tree is approachable, however in some places at least its availability is low compared to other Eucalyptus spp. Oftentimes seed collections are preferentially made from species with higher yields and this species is most unlikely to be a generous seed producer.

Historical Notes

Eucalyptus thozetiana was named after the French-Australian botanist, Anthelme Thozet (1826–1878). 

Distribution

"Central-eastern and southern Queensland from Talwood to north of Clermont and an isolated occurrence on "The Garden" Station north-east of Alice Springs." (Brooker, M.I.H., and Kleinig, D.A., 2004)
