EGU, HSF. Also NSW. In Victoria rare and apparently confined to catchments of the Mitchell, Snowy and Wellington Rivers, usually among rocks in riparian scrub or on bluffs overlooking rivers. A record from near Underbool in the north-west requires confirmation given its disjunction and difference in environment to confirmed parts of its range.
