Eucalyptus, from Greek ευ (well) + κάλυπτος (veiled) = "Well covered"
Anthesis, from Greek άνθος (flower) + ησις (event) = "The time or action of a flower opening"

"The tree above described appears to be undoubtedly of the same genus as that cultivated in some greenhouses in England, which Mr. L'Héritier has described in his Sertum Anglicum (1) but we dare not assert it to be the same species, nor can this point be determined till the flowers and every part of both be seen and compared"

So that ridge below the flower was actually caused by the outer operculum, which was shed much earlier?

You can bet! I think I have some photos depicting exactly that for some of my eucalypts here, but darn it, I cannot find it now! But I will! >:-)
