Recent studies of variation in Southern Blue-gums (Jordan et al. 1993) suggest that populations of typical subsp. globulus occur in Victoria only in the area south of the Strzelecki Range, e.g. Port Franklin, Wilsons Promontory, and that other populations in south Gippsland and the Otway Ranges probably represent intergrades between subsp. globulus and subsp. pseudoglobulus.
