Eucalypteae is a large tribe of flowering plants in the family Myrtaceae; members of this tribe are known as eucalypts.[1][2] In Australia the genera Angophora, Corymbia, and Eucalyptus are commonly known as gum trees, for the sticky substance that exudes from the trunk of some species.[3] As of 2020, the tribe comprised around 860 species, all native to Southeast Asia and Oceania, with a main diversity center in Australia.[4]

There are seven genera in the tribe Eucalypteae:[1][2][4]

Allosyncarpia S.T.Blake – Australia
Angophora Cav. – Australia
Arillastrum Pancher ex Baill. – New Caledonia
Corymbia K.D.Hill & L.A.S.Johnson – Oceania
Eucalyptopsis C.T.White –, Indonesia, New Guinea
Eucalyptus L'Hér. – Southeast Asia, Oceania
Stockwellia D.J.Carr, S.G.M.Carr & B.Hyland – Australia
