Within the genus Eucalyptus, one new species (E. scyphata) and four new subspecies (E. caesia subsp. boodjin, E. urna subsp. xesta, E. polita subsp. ocreata, and E. marginata subsp. spurgeana) are described, and four new combinations (E. sect. Glandulosae, E. sect. Frutices, E. arctata and E. astringens subsp.merleae) are formally made. All nine new taxa occur naturally in southern Australia, with eight of the nine taxa being endemic to south-western Western Australia.
