Botany picture #169: Corymbia gummifera
Corymbia gummifera (Myrtaceae), Jervis Bay, 2014. Only slowly I am beginning to really appreciate the Myrtaceae family. I must admit that when I came here I decided to focus on learning other groups first, especially Asteraceae, Lamiaceae, Acacia and Proteaceae, but now I am starting to get a handle on the generic concepts in that family.
Corymbia is generally easily recognised by the attractive, urn-shaped capsules, as seen in this picture.
