Hallo all

i m looking for some information on the name 'Eucalyptus deglupta'. what is the origin or the meaning of the word 'deglupta' . i mean like Eucalyptus ‘eu’=well + ‘calyptos’=covered, refers to the protective operculum or cap like structure in the bud stage of the tree.

what is the meaning/origin/etymology of the word deglupta?

From the Latin degluptere, to peel or peeling skin, referring to the
way the bark peels from the trunk
