*Gold, *NIS. Native to the eastern Mediterranean region. Known in Victoria only by a 1908 collection from Eldorado in the north east, and Tarnagulla (between Dunolly and Inglewood) where first noted occurring as a weed in an oat crop extending into adjacent native woodland in 1965, and perhaps now successfully eradicated from that area (last seen in 2011).
