DunT, GGr, Wim. Known from Mt Arapiles and ranges in the northern Grampians (Mt Zero, Halls Gap area, northern slopes of Serra Range, Red Rocks area), growing in sandy, well-drained soils.

Distinguished from other forms of E. goniocalyx by its glossy green, juvenile leaves and bark that is persistent on the trunk, but tends to shed in long strips on main branches.

Grows in close proximity to E. alaticaulis in the northern Grampians, but tends to occur at lower altitudes than that species. Eucalyptus alaticaulis is generally distinguished by its mostly smooth-barked trunks.
