CVU, EGL, EGU, Gold, HSF, NIS, OtP, OtR, VAlp, VVP, WaP. In Victoria confined mainly to the Otway Range where locally common in gullies and tall wet forests, but with occurrences in the east, near Bairnsdale and Orbost and more surprising records from drier forest.in the Pyrenees Range, Wombat Forest and Beechworth areas. The latter three records are likely to represent occurrences derived from transported seed or perhaps plantings, but the discontinuous distribution of the subspecies through much of its overall range suggests there the possibility of these being natural occurrences can't be discounted.
