Probably one of the most common species if the Laurel family in the wet tropics, L. leefeana is an endemic tree that is found in most open forest areas in proximity to rainforest, and is thus a characteristic component of regenerating rainforest. What makes it so suited to open areas is probably an interesting ecological question and would be worth examining scientifically.
Commonly known as Brown Bolly Gum or Brown Bollywood, the features that make this species distinctive are not easy to describe, but once known, it can be recognized almost anywhere. The coomon occurence on its own is probably one of the common features, coupled with the elliptic leaves with hairy surfaces. More on this when I get more photos.
The specific epithet was named after a botanical collecter, Mr Leefee.
