MSB. Also Qld, NSW. Very rare in Victoria where known by a few collections near the Murray River in the north-west of the State: Wallpolla Island, west of Mildura (1933), Hattah-Kulkyne National Park (2019) and Tooleybuc (1971), in each case, parasitic on Eucalyptus camaldulensis.
While not generally noted as a diagnostic character between this and the typical subspecies (although implied by the epithet), the leaves on the Victorian specimens are up to 40 cm long and are under 1 cm wide. The Victorian collections are from sites more than 500 kms from the nearest known occurrences near Parkes in New South Wales.
