This thread didn't seem to get far sadly.

 

Here's one I feel I should know:  Australasian I'd say - Banksia-like almost.

The bark is dark red/brown and peeling; the wood is extremely wet and also a very dark reddy-brown.  I have a pic of it but it's in Whatsapp - I can't/don't know how to get it from there to here.

Defo not Tamarix guys; I know that one well and have grown them myself.

As an aside Tamarix roots were found 150' deep when the Suez canal was being excavated. Hence the species being used as desert wind and sand breaks.

ID'd by my father-in-law's gardener; I think it's been gnawing at him.

Lyonothamnus floribundus, the Catalina Ironwood.

 

Now why didn't I get it at the start?O.o
