Affinity.

It would appear to take the place, in Queensland, of the more southern E. polyanthemos Schauer, or rather of its narrow-leaved forms. The anthers, however, sharply separate them. The leaves also are different both in shape and venation. The rough bark is more scaly than that of E. polyanthemos, and the line of demarcation more clearly defined.

It is named in honour of Mr. Richard Hind Cambage, who has done valuable work in connection with this genus. I shall refer to this work more in detail in the epilogue. E. Cambagei Deane and Maiden is conspecific with E. elœophora F.v.M.
