Eucalyptus costuligera is a eucalypt that is native to Western Australia.

The tree typically grows to a height of 5 metres (16 ft). It has full box grey bark that persistent throughout, fibrous-flaky with whitish patches underneath. The adult leaves are disjunct, dull, grey-green, thick and concolorous. The blade has a lanceolate or broad lanceolate shape that are basally tapered. Leaves are held on petioles that are channeled or narrowly flattened. When the tree blooms it produces terminal or axillary compound conflorescences with three to seven flowered umbellasters on terete peduncles. The flowers are a white-cream colour with a calyptrate calyx that sheds early.

E. costuligera has a limited range and is confined to a small area in the central Kimberley region of western Australia amongst savannah woodland in sandy to loamy soils over laterite.
