Leaves oblanceolate to narrowly obovate, mostly to 6(–10) mm wide, entire or irregularly toothed. Fruiting bracteoles top-shaped, usually slightly compressed with a narrow, often irregularly toothed wing encircling the flattened or ± saddle-shaped apex; apical beak erect, 1–2 mm long. Fruits most of year.

MuF, MuM, RobP, VRiv. Also SA, Qld, NSW. Occasional on heavier soils on the Murray River floodplain in the north-west (e.g. Lindsay Is., Mildura, Red Cliffs, Kerang area).

Occurs with the other subspecies and intermediates, probably the result of hybridism, may occur. In particular, the disctinction between this and subsp. inflata is sometimes unclear.
