First described by Stan Blake in 1977. Corymbia henryi has generally larger and coarser leaves and bigger buds than the other two core forms of Spotted Gum- Corymbia citriodora and Corymbia maculata. The leaves in the image are 12 inches long, C. henryi is restricted in distribution between Brisbane and Coffs Harbour and described as a Significant species. “All spotted gum species are important and well known in forestry, silverculture and horticulture and there is considerable merit in recognizing specific distinction between the 3 core forms”.
