(yellow gum) is closely to E. johnstoniiand E.
vernicosa, and has the thick, dark green leaves and yellow-green
bark of this group. As a species, it can also be confused with E.
urnigera, which however has urn-shaped capsules. It is quite variable in form, ranging from a
straight tree up to about 60m tall growing in mixed forest, to a
mallee-form subalpine shrub.
