Beilschmiedia bancroftii is a tree species in the Lauraceae family. It is native to Queensland in Australia.[1] Common names include yellow walnut, yellow nut and canary ash.[2]

The species was first formally described by Queensland colonial botanist Frederick Manson Bailey in 1891, based on plant material collected on the Johnstone River and "other scrubs of tropical Queensland".[3] It was initially named Cryptocarya bancroftii, but later transferred to the genus Beilschmiedia in 1918 by Cyril Tenison White.[3]

Though the seeds are toxic when fresh, they were used by indigenous Australians following treatment. [4][5]
