"Eucryphia jinksii" (Springbrook Leatherwood) is a tree found in Queensland, Australia.

It is a tree to 30m tall in the family Cunoniaceae discovered as a new species only in 1994 by David Jinks. The species is listed as Endangered on the Queensland Nature Conservation Act.

Distribution and habitat

It is known from only a single creek catchment in Warm Temperate Rainforest on the Springbrook Plateau. Another stand has been discovered growing not as trees but as a thicket of multi stemmed shrubs on a wind sheared clifftop also in the Springbrook Area.

Description

"E. jinksii" trees have pale lichen covered bark typical of many species in the Warm Temperate Rainforests. Often a ring of coppice shoots surrounds the base of an adult tree, coppice and seedling leaves have 5-7 leaflets, while adult leaves have 1-3.

Flowers are cream with four petals and numerous stamens. Beehives near other species of Eucryphia make a famous rich honey known as Leatherwood Honey this species has considerable potential for honey production.

Fruits are small brown capsules with multiple segments and small seeds.
