Range.

I have only received it from Bathurst Island (which is to the immediate west of Melville Island, and with it forms a huge double island off the Northern Territory, north of Darwin).

It grows in somewhat heavy soil, in rather flat localities (presumably subject to floods) and associated with E. papuana, E. terminalis and an occasional No. 464. (E. latifolia F.v.M.) (G. F. Hill).

A photograph of a moderately dense forest, taken by Mr. Hill, shows the distinct outlines of a tree of this species about 40 feet high, with a diameter of about 2 feet. There is, partly in the foreground, a tree of the same species, perhaps 50 feet high.
