Eucalyptus rossii

Eucalyptus rossii R. Baker & H.G. Smith, Res. Eucalypts 70 (1902).
TYPE: New South Wales, Bungendore, W. Baeuerlen, Feb 1899 (lecto NSW; here designated). The localities cited for material for oil distillation are "Cow Flat,Bathurst,N.S.W., 4th March 1901,"and "Bungendore, N.S.W, 3rd March, 1899." No specimens corresponding to the above citations can be located, but Baker & Smith apparently often used all of the collected material for oil distillation. The selected Lectotype was annotated E. rossii by Baker, and is from one of the cited localities.
