Eucalyptus urophylla is a species of Eucalypt native to islands of the Indonesian Archipelago and Timor. It has been used to produce hybrid species as it appears to be insect-resistant, including a timber with a trade name of "Lyptus", hybridised with Eucalyptus grandis, commonly known as the rose gum or flooded gum.[1]

It is the floral emblem of East Timor.[citation needed]
