General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
Identifying Eucalypts is very difficult. While we have photo's here to help people they can't be used on their own. It is important to have a printed page with physical size drawings and a specimen of the buds, caps & nuts in hand placed over the drawing.
If we ever work out a way to show photo's at real size on your computer then these photo's would be usable.
In time we plan to put a lot more comparative photo's (ie photo's with multiple specimens to directly compare size & shape). But at this stage we are flat chat just getting our species identified and a set of representative photos on the net.
