  • Type: "Mr. Deane and I first collected it near Springwood in 1888.I have received it during the last four or five years from the following localities — Pigeon House Mountain, near Milton; grows to within 100 feet of the top, on sandy, rather barren soil; also sandy ground at Burrill, Ulladulla (R. H. Cambage); Wingello (J. L. Boorman); top of mountain east of Burragorang (R. H. Cambage); Penang Mountain (A. Murphy)."
  • Etymology: "I name this species in honour of First-Assistant Surgeon D. Considen, one of the founders of Australia. In reviewing the 'Historical Records of New South Wales' (Vol. i., Part 2) in the 'Sydney Morning Herald' of 23rd July, 1892, I drew attention to the fact that Considen's letter, dated 18th Nov., 1788, to Sir Joseph Banks, is perhaps the most interesting one in the collection to the student of economic botany. From the following passage it would appear that Considen was the founder of the Eucalyptus oil industry. 'We have a large peppermint tree which is equal, if not superior, to our English peppermint. I have sent you a specimen of it. If there is any merit in applying these and many other simples to the benefit of the poor wretches here, I certainly claim it, being the first who discovered and recommended them.' At this time a bottle of Eucalyptus oil was sent to Sir Joseph Banks by Governor Phillip. I further wrote in the review, 'I think some effort should be made to rescue the name of the first user of Australian plants from oblivion. I trust that at least a species will be named after the pioneer before many months are over.' I regret that the matter slipped my memory on more than one occasion, but I now dedicate to his memory a species very closely allied to that from which he distilled the first Australian Eucalyptus oil."
