Eucalyptus camaldulensis, globulus, gunnii.
E. camaldulensis, that is planted mainly in recreational areas, is much more sensitive than E globulus, essentially a forest tree.
In the first publications about the occurrence of this species in Europe it was incorrectly identified as E. eucalypti (Gahan, 1922), and under that name it is listed in the Fauna Europaea (2014).
