    Árboles hasta 70 m; ramas jóvenes, inflorescencias y hojas maduras glabras. Corteza delgada, lisa, blanca, amarilla o gris, las tiras libres de corteza más vieja frecuentemente persistentes cerca de la base. Hojas maduras lanceoladas o angostamente lanceoladas, rectas o falcadas; láminas 10-25 × 2-3 cm, coriáceas, verdes, concoloras; vena media aplanada o convexa en el haz, convexa en el envés; nervaduras laterales 12-25 por lado; nervaduras intramarginales a c. 2 mm de los márgenes; base cuneada u oblicua; márgenes cartilaginosos; ápice acuminado; pecíolos 20-35 mm, comprimidos o cóncavos adaxialmente.

Flores sésiles o pediceladas; pedicelos 1-4 mm, comprimidos, 2- o 4-angulares; hipantos 10-20 × 12-18 mm, ampliamente campanulados o ciatiformes, no prolongados por encima del ovario; estambres no vistos; estilo no visto. Frutos 10-21 × 12-25 mm, obcónicos, 4-angulares, verrugosos; disco ancho, ascendente, grueso; valvas 4-5, del mismo tamaño o exertas. Cultivadas, escapadas localmente. Ch ( Breedlove y McClintock 23613, MICH); G ( Standley 84891, F); P ( Lao 324, MO). 600-2200 m. (Nativa de Australia; cultivada en otros sitios.)

    Standley (1937: 771), reportó esta especie para Costa Rica. Su determinación fue aparentemente con base en un ejemplar estéril, Valerio 167 (F), colectado en San José. A pesar de que el ejemplar no pudo ser identificado a especie en ausencia de flores y frutos, los restos de la inflorescencia delgados y pedúnculos hasta 1 cm de largo, comprimidos, indican que este no es Eucalyptus globulus .
