Bald Island Marlock

Eucalytpus conferruminata

Habitat:

Dry sclerophyll forest

Notes:

This was the flower of a tree. I did not take photos of the whole plant (a common oversight on my part). All three photos were from the same plant and appear to show the flower in different stages of growth, interestingly, all at the same time. Any ID help would be awesomely appreciated!

Fantastic! Thank you, Leuba. I thought I had uploaded a photo of the green pompom flower as well but seems to have not worked. I'm new to Project Noah (and loving it)!

oanh 1, your photo shows a cluster of young flower buds with elongated caps still on. When the flowers bloom, they look like green pompoms - very pretty indeed. The stalk that bears the cluster of flowers is very short , almost absent. Pic #2 are the dried seed pods after the flowers wither and drop off. I find this tree amazing and very interesting - good spotting. You could include this spotting in the "seed pods" mission...
