Forms with leaves larger and relatively broader than normal (indicated by the bracketed values in the description above) occur near Suggan Buggan, Genoa, near Mt Buffalo and at Mitta Mitta, sometimes in association with typical P. angustifolia, and with no obvious intermediates.Their taxonomic status warrants investigation.
