EGL, EGU, HSF, VAlp. Also NSW. Gregariously sporadic east from c. Healesville, growing in montane eucalypt forests and damp heathy woodlands, in stony loam soils derived from quartzite, or occasionally granite and conglomerate. Regenerates from seed, not known to root-sucker.
This is the type subspecies (if subsp. 2 is maintained within A. asperifolia) and the type collection is from Mt Buffalo.
Populations near Toombullup (between Mansfield and Whitfield) have particularly narrow leaves (1–2 mm wide) with the upper surface unusually convex and rough. Occasional specimens in Victoria and New South Wales approach subsp. 2 in leaf width and in their paucity of leaf asperities
