Eucalypts are the dominant trees in Australia. Consequently, they play significant roles in the landscape, in the ecology of our land, in forestry, in apiculture and in horticulture.
EUCLID provides complete descriptions of 934 species and subspecies of Angophora, Corymbia and Eucalyptus plus an interactive identification key using Lucid software. It covers all Australian States and Territories. Over twelve thousand images are used to assist interpretation of species features and the species themselves as well as their geographic distribution.
This innovative application makes identification a breeze. The process begins by choosing from simple characteristics of the eucalypt you are trying to identify. For example, answer questions such does it have rough or smooth bark, leaf shapes and flower types. If you’re not sure what to look at next the Lucid application can even recommend features to guide you through to the fastest identification possible. EUCLID is a treasure-trove of information. The application brings together beautifully illustrated features states to help visualise your choices as well as fact sheets and images of every species – all at your fingertips.
The App edition of EUCLID still functions without an internet connection, making it especially valuable for people working in the field.

Ratings and Reviews
Good reference with some bugs
Great way to identify eucalypts in the field, but only useful when you have mobile data available. After multiple attempts I’ve given up on actually getting the imagery to download and stay available offline, but would really appreciate being able to do so. It would be ideal if this could happen in the background, too! For some reason it only seems to partially work when the app is left open with my phone unlocked, but even then it’s unreliable.
Very expensive but excellent reference
Impressive app, the information is 5 stars but the app implementation and user experience needs a little work. Love the offline downloads for field identification. Would love an option to search by species or common name rather than scrolling the alphabetical listing of fact sheets. Also handy feature would be to narrow search by flowering month or season. The splash screen takes too long to clear, and there’s no way to skip it.
Downloads constantly removed?
The downloading of >8000 photos which are needed to identify characteristics of the species are constantly removed and required to re-download. Also there is no search function.
Otherwise a very useful app for when you have reception.
