There are 2 subspecies. Currently all plants in Victoria are referred to E. dalrympleana subsp. dalrympleana (see description under that name), but a large-fruited form with greyish rather than green adult leaves occurs at a few sites in the Victorian subalps. See note under subsp. dalrympleana regarding this form.

Eucalyptus dalrympleana subsp. heptantha L.A.S.Johnson occurs in northern New South Wales and Queensland, and is distungished from the type subspecies by the buds (and flowers) in clusters of 7.
