Some fungal smut mixed with nectar?  Just guessing, but it brings up the
question of the ecology of these eucalypts abroad without most of their
evolved associated fauna.  Are American warblers trying (albeit clumsily,
without the right beak shapes, tongue lengths and brushes, or naked faces)
to get the nectar ?
