Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Tree to 45 m tall, differing from subsp. globulus in the peduncles to 1 cm long, 3-flowered inflorescences with smaller, stoutly pedicellate buds to 0.9 cm long, 0.7 cm diam., placentae with 4–6 vertical rows of ovules, and fruit to 1.1 cm long, 1.6 cm diam. Flowers Jan.–Feb.

CVU, EGL, EGU, GipP, GGr, HFE, HSF, OtP, OtR, Strz, VVP. Also NSW, Tas. Largely coastal, but inland populations occur at Lerderderg Gorge and in the hills north of Toongabbie. It intergrades with subsp. globulus, and populations with 1- and 3-flowered trees in southern Gippsland and the Otway Ranges may be impossible to attribute definitely to either subspecies. Populations north from Orbost to Gelantipy may represent intergrades with subsp. bicostata. Subsp. pseudoglobulus is most distinct east from Bairnsdale to Mallacoota.

Presumed hybrids with E. tereticornis have been recorded near Metung (see E. ×paradoxa).
