Species identified by Robert Miller. Previously seen in Belanglo SF/FR during fieldwork for the fine-scale vegetation map, but those plants were older and drought-affected, so appeared quite different to the healthy and younger plant in Gibbergunyah Reserve. The species has an odd distribution that suggests that either the northern and southern occurrences may be separate subtaxa, or that it occurs but is yet to be recorded between those locations. Appears to warrant a status of at least Vulnerable, even if both the Highlands and western BMtns populations are the same entity.
