Were they my photos? I was wary of the similarities between ghost gums and red gums, especially as they both like similar habitats in the Kimberley - floodplains.
I don't think they are that similar really if you have a good look at them, but flashing past in a bus it would be hard to differentiate. I probably saw C. flavescens as well as C. bella up there, which complicates things more, because I don't really know what flavescens looks like.
C. apparerinja doesn't grow in the Kimberley, so it can be discounted from my photos, unless you are talking about the photos I took in Central australia a few years ago.
