Species information

Citrus x limon     (L.) Osbeck

This introduced tree is commonly known as bush lemon.

Citrus x limon is described as a "dicot" in the Rutaceae family.

In the Queensland Nature Conservation Act it is not classified as it is not native to Queensland. Under the Federal Environment Protection Biodiversity Conservation Act it is not classified.

Also reported on Fraser Island Synonym: including Citrus x taitensis (not recorded in Queensland). There appears to be some confusion as to the true identity of some of the specimens included under this name (Gwen Harden, Hugh Nicholson, Bill McDonald, Nan Nicholson, Terry Tame, John Williams. 2014. Rainforest Plants of Australia).  

It has been recorded in the Wide Bay district in the Queensland Herbarium Census but is not listed as occurring in the Fraser Coast region in Queensland Herbarium Wildlife Online.

Reported at 10 Fraser Coast localities: Bauple Forest, Bidwill, Booral, Dundowran Beach, Howard, Island Plantation, River Heads, Talegalla Weir, Teddington, Tinana.
