Eucalyptus dalveenica, a new and endangered species from eastern Australia
Updated: Mar 23, 2019
Eucalyptus dalveenica, or Dalveen Blue Box, is a new species discovered by Tim Collins and colleagues from the NCW Beadle Herbarium at the University of New England (NSW) and reported in a study published recently in Australian Systematic Botany. The new species is supported as distinct from related E. magnificata and E. baueriana in analyses of morphological, phytochemical and molecular characters. Eucalyptus dalveenica is only known from one site near Dalveen, Queensland.
Morphological, phytochemical and molecular analyses define species limits in Eucalyptus magnificata (Myrtaceae) and lead to the discovery of a new rare species
