Threat status:Victoria: vulnerable (v)
Differs from subsp. paludosa in the presence of glandular hairs (rather than sessile glands) on the outer surface of the calyx, 0.05–0.15 mm long, varying in extent, sometimes confined to upper parts, occasionally only in lower parts, or all over. Corollas vary in the incidence of the yellow spot behind the lowest lobe; anthers 1.2–2.2 mm long, with rear awns 0.2–0.5 mm long. Seeds 0.6–1.2 mm long. Flowers Dec.–Jan.
Apparently endemic in Victoria. Known only from Mt Wellington and Mt Howitt, where occurring in subalpine grassland of summit areas, or in Eucalyptus pauciflora woodland amongst shrubs.
Glabrous plants attributable to subsp. paludosa and glandular-hairy plants of this race occur together on Mt Wellington, but elsewhere these are clearly separate races.
