Eucalyptus Leaf

I got the new iPhone 4 over the summer, and I really love it. The high-resolution retina display is the best thing about it, but it also comes with a fantastic new camera.

Here's one of the first pics I took with the iPhone's camera; it's a close-up of some eucalyptus leaves on the tree in my yard. I love this photo because it shows off the detail from the camera, and the detail of the leaf itself. I'm guessing the little dots on the leaf are the individual pores (or stomata). It reminds me of a circuit board...

The dots are oil glands, characteristic of most eucalyptus spp. leaves. Stomata a very much smaller than oil glands.

Do you know what species of eucalyptus this is?
