Uses

Australia (South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales): a white, sweet, crumbly manna exudes from the bark, consisiting of an umfermentable sugar called eucalin, and a fermentable sugar reported to be dextro-glucose. This exudation has been reported variously as caused by the boring action of the Great Black, or Manna cicada (Cicada moerens ) or, by an unidentified gall- producing coccus.
