- Eucalyptus caleyi
Maiden, Proc. Linn. Soc. New South Wales 30: 512 (1906).
- TYPE: New South Wales, Howell, J.H. Maiden & J.L. Boorman, Aug 1905 (holo NSW, iso G, K, L). Maiden cited 7 collections in the protologue without specifying a type. He did however refer to one (Tingha, Boorman, Jun 1904) as having "fruits less pear-shaped than the type". He later designated "Howell, N.S.W. (J.H.M and J.L. Boorman) as the type (C.R. 2: 99, legend to plate 56), and had labelled this specimen " Type". Since this specimen was apparently his intended type from the beginning, it is accepted as the Holotype.
