Author's notes

i am not sure if there is enough to give certainty to an Id, non the less i would value your opinions "Plants" and Pam. Thank you in anticipation. The location should be correct to about 40 m. I have a photo of the buds and flowers, but its for the 12.10.14. so I cannot be certain it was for the same tree.

The stalked fruit are a bit 'un-globoidea' like, and they are not as crowded as I would think.

Disc level to slightly descending, valves 3-4. E. globoidea fruit is cowded, I agree with plants that these don't appear as crowded as I would expect. The fruit should also be hemispherical to trucate-globose. These fruit appear to be very slightly ureceolate!? Are either of are you aware of 'stringybark' spp. down your way that these fruit may belong to. Sorry it has been years since I've looked at Eucalypts and I would have to go back and research the ones that are in your region. As well I'd like to see the leaves, preferably immature and mature..........

Eucalyptus eugenioides has been reported from Kioloa and the pedicellate, less crowded fruits would fit. Euclid says the disc level can be descending. I don't know about other Stringybarks. Thanks to you both I have learned enough to go and find out more about the group. I needed a starting point. More work needed. This is an old sample so cannot provide much more info, but I will see what I can find at the site.
