Eucalyptus paedoglauca

Status: Vulnerable on the EPBC Act list

Eucalyptus paedoglauca, Family Myrtaceae, is a medium sized tree to 15 m. Bark is rough
throughout, furrowed, very hard and dark grey in colour. Adult leaves are stalked, lance shaped or sickle-shaped, 1.2Ð3 cm wide, dull grey-green on both surfaces. Flowers are in
terminal clusters, with 3Ð7 buds per umbel. Flower buds are 6Ð8 mm long when mature, on
stalks 2Ð4 mm long. The fruit is cup shaped, 6Ð7 mm long and 5Ð6 mm wide, with 4 or 5
valves that are shortly exserted.
Eucalyptus paedoglauca is distinguished from E. drepanophylla by the egg-shaped juvenile
leaves which are white and waxy, and the larger buds and fruits (Hill & Johnson, 1991).
Flowering occurs April and May.
