Galls made by males. Would need to find galls made by the females on the same plant for a species id. The shape, colour and clustering of the galls do resemble those made by the males of *Apiomorpha strombylosa*. Any idea of the eucalypt species?

Pretty sure it is a Yellow Box, Eucalyptus melliodora
