Diagnostic features as given in key. Flowers mostly spring and summer.

Gold, LoM, MuM, VRiv. Also WA, SA. Largely co-extensive with, but not as common as, var. glomeratum.

These 2 taxa are treated as distinct species by some authors but further study is required to be certain of their relationship. They are extremely difficult to distinguish using herbarium material, accompanying notes on flower colour often providing the only strong clue to their identity.
