Eucalyptus macrorhyncha, commonly known as red gum or red stringybark,[1] is a small to medium-sized tree with rough, thick fibrous and stringy, dark-brown bark.

Adult leaves are stalked, lanceolate, to 15 x 2.5 cm, concolorous, and slightly glossy green. White flowers appear in mid summer to mid autumn.

E. macrorhyncha was first recognised as a distinct species and given its name by Ferdinand von Mueller. In 1867, George Bentham published a formal description in Volume 3 of his Flora Australiensis. Bentham's description was based on syntypes collected by Mueller and Frederick Adamson.[2]

The tree occurs on ranges and tablelands of New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria, with a small, disjunct population south-west of Clare in South Australia.[3]

Subspecies[edit]

  • Eucalyptus macrorhyncha subsp. cannonii (R.T.Baker) L.A.S.Johnson & Blaxell - Cannon's stringybark or Capertree stringybark, regarded by some authorities as a separate species, Eucalyptus cannonii.[5]
