Eucalyptus costata subsp. murrayana L.A.S.Johnson & K.D.Hill

Telopea 9: 269 (2001) APNI

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Fruits smooth or slightly ribbed, to 11 mm diam.

GGr, LoM, MuF, MuM, RobP, Wim. Also SA, NSW. Common in mallee scrubs on deep sand in Little Desert, Big Desert and Sunset Country.

Not well distinguished from E. incrassata (regarded here as endemic to Western Australia), and in many regards more similar to that species that the typical form of E. costata. However, it is retained in E. costata due to the presence of intermediate forms with typical E. costata in the Wimmera. Eucalyptus costata subsp. murrayana appears to differ from E. incrassata by the erect peduncles and slightly more ribbed buds and fruits.
