Author's notes

They were growing among Spotted Gums..Some trees looked like a cross of the two types of gums

As a general rule, it's good to include some fruits in a euc sighting. If the ones on the tree are too high (as in this case!) you can often find them on the ground at the base of the tree, though in that case it's often impossible to be sure which tree they fell from. But I can be sure of this being cypellocarpa based on the location and bark. It's unlikely to hybridise with spotted gum, which is a bloodwood and not closely related. You do get occasional euc hybrids, but only of species that belong in the same subgroup of eucs. Spotted gum and red bloodwood occasionally hybridise.
