DunT, GGr. Apparently endemic to dry rocky slopes in the Grampian Ranges.
Previously included in Eucalyptus cypellocarpa (see note under E. litoralis), but distinguished by its shorter size, persistent rough bark, and relatively broader juvenile leaves. Eucalyptus alaticaulis also has a close affinity with E. goniocalyx (see note under that species).
