Eucalyptus tricarpa subsp. decora Rule

Bealiba Ironbark

Muelleria 20: 27 (2004) APNI

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Endemic

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: vulnerable (v)

Branchlets, petioles and buds pruinose; juvenile leaves to 1.1 cm wide; adult leaves greyish.

Gold, HSF. Occurs in open woodlands around St Arnaud, on red gravely loams.

Grows in close proximity to the type subspecies. However, there is no evidence of interbreeding between them.    

Strongly pruinose plants from Maffra in eastern Victoria have tentatively been referred to Eucalyptus tricarpa subsp. decora. These plants have much broader juvenile leaves and larger fruits than E. t. subsp. decora, and probably represent a new taxon.
