Some years ago .Mr. T. B. Moore discovered, on the
range between New Norfolk and the Huon district, a Gumtree
which appeared to be somewhat different from any
with which he was acquainted. He described it in the
Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania,
1886, page 207, giving it the name Euc. muelleri. This name
was unfortunate, as Miquel had already applied it to a form
of Euc. dumosa, and Naudin had used it for a variety of
Euc. ovata. The name was allowed to remain till Maiden in the
Revision, Vol. 6, p. 280, replaced it by Euc. johnstoni as some
small recognition of the work done in botanical science by
Robert Mackenzie Johnston.
The tree has since been observed on Mount Wellington,
Mount Field, and many peaks to the west.
Locally it is commonly called Brown Gum.
