Leaves are stalked, lanceolate or curved, discolorous, to 13 x 3 cm, slightly glossy green. White flowers appear in early to late summer. E. cloeziana has a widespread but scattered distribution in Queensland, particularly from east of Tambo to Mundubbera and Gympie, and from west of Townsville to north-west of Cooktown with isolated occurrences in between.

The tree reaches its best development in the Gympie region, where some magnificent forest trees attain heights near 60 metres. in other places it can be a poorly formed tree of only 10–15 metres. The flaky bark can be confused with the yellow bloodwoods, to which it is not related.
