Eucalyptus rodwayi (Myrtaceae) 1:211

Eucalyptus rodwayi (sometimes misleadingly called Swamp Peppermint) is a smallish eucalypt of waterlogged areas, except in the south-west. It has seven fruit per umbel. It is closely related to E. ovata, E. brookeriana and E. barberi, but can be easily distinguished from those species by having fibrous bark throughout the trunk. 

Its habit is similar to that of E. amygdalina, but it grows in poorly drained areas rather than the dry rocky places occupied by E. amygdalina.
