Several trees closest to the Campus Drive–facing walls of Lantana and Castaño, identified as E. polyanthemos on the Eucalyptus Walk map. Distinguished from E. camaldulensis by rough fibrous bark on trunk and larger branches, larger buds and usually hemispherical fruit with disc level or slightly ascending.
