Eucalyptus ×studleyensis Maiden

Crit. Revis. Eucalyptus 6: 121 (1922) APNI

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

A morphologically variable hybrid between E. camaldulensis subsp. camaldulensis and E. ovata subsp. ovata from the lower Yarra River north-east of Melbourne (Kew, Viewbank, Watsonia). Plants are intermediate between the two parent taxa in leaf, bud and fruit characters, often showing a closer affinity to either parent in one or more of these features. Putative hybrids between E. camaldulensis and E. ovata have also been recorded south-east of Melbourne. However, these plants appear to be outside the range of variation exhibited by those in the lower Yarra Valley.
