Name

Eucalyptus macrorhyncha F.Muell. ex Benth.

Eucalyptus macrorhyncha, commonly known as Red Gum, Red Stringybark, Cannons Stringybark or Capertee Stringybark,[1] is a small to medium-sized tree with rough, thick fibrous and stringy, dark-brown bark.

Adult leaves are stalked, lanceolate, to 15 x 2.5 cm, concolorous, and slightly glossy green. White flowers appear in mid summer to mid autumn.

E. macrorhyncha was first recognised as a distinct species and given its name by Ferdinand von Mueller. In 1867, George Bentham published a formal description in Volume 3 of his Flora Australiensis. Bentham's description was based on syntypes collected by Mueller and Frederick Adamson. [2]

The tree occurs on ranges and tablelands of New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria, with a small, disjunct population south-west of Clare in South Australia. [3]
