Australian Systematic Botany 4: 388 (1991) APNI
Threat status:Victoria: rare (r)
Tall tree similar to E. nitens, differing most conspicuously in the shorter juvenile phase of the saplings, the denticulate margins of the adult leaves and the persistent outer operculum with the scarred tip showing emergent inner operculum.
EGL, EGU, HFE, HSF, MonT, VAlp. Also NSW. Chiefly in well-watered ranges in east Gippsland, e.g. on the Errinundra Plateau, Mt Kaye, Mt Tennyson. Other populations occur within the distribution of E. nitens. Flowering time unknown.
Eucalyptus denticulata and E. nitens are closely related and morphological divergence between them is only partial in many populations in the eastern highlands. The peculiar tip to the buds in E. denticulata can be seen as well in the unrelated E. sturgissiana, a mallee of restricted distribution on sandstone in southern New South Wales.
