A presumed hybrid between E. macrorhyncha and E. muelleriana or E. obliqua. Intermediate between these taxa in bud and fruit characters. Recorded in the Warrandyte and Lilydale area north-east of Melbourne. Despite its morphological similarities, E. muelleriana appears unlikely to be a parent taxon as it does not occur in the Melbourne area.
