Corymbia ptychocarpa is found from the Kimberley region of Western Australia and through the Top End of the Northern Territory to near Doomadgee in far north-western Queensland. It grows in sandy soils and alluvium along watercourses and near springs. In the Northern Territory it occurs on the Arnhem Plateau, Daly Basin, Ord Victoria Plain, Pine Creek and the Victoria Bonaparte biogeographic regions.

Distinctive large shiny leaves and showy flowers, ranging from white to pink or red. Large ribbed seed capsules follow. This is an attractive medium sized tree endemic to the Top End, from the Kimberly to northwest Queensland. Trees show good resistance to cyclone damage. Seeds are edible in their raw state.
