Marri Corymbia calophylla, copyright Jean and Fred Hort.

Belongs within: Myrtaceae.
Contains: Eucalyptus, ‘Eucalyptus’ section Septentrionales.

The Eucalypteae are a primarily Australian group of trees and shrubs producing flowers bearing numerous free stamens, borne on a stemonophore, and often with a calyptrate perianth. Most species have historically been included in the genus Eucalyptus though more recent phylogenetic studies have lead to recognition of the genera Angophora and Corymbia as distinct.
