Eucalyptus costata subsp. costata

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: data deficient (k)

Fruits moderately to strongly ribbed, to 13 mm diam.

MuM, Wim. Also SA. Apparently restricted to the Wimmera region (Telopea Downs, Nurcoung and Cooack). However, intermediates between the nominate subspecies and subspecies murrayana also occur in this general area.

Closely allied to Eucalyptus angulosa which is largely coastal and does not occur in Victoria. Eucalyptus angulosa is distinguished by its more strongly ribbed fruits and broader leaves.
