Nuytsia 4: 197 (1983) APNI
Threat status:Victoria: data deficient (k)
Prostrate or decumbent perennial, odorous (with the smell of rotting fish) when crushed. Stems and leaves densely covered with grey, globoid or saucer-shaped vesicular hairs; leaves petiolate, narrowly elliptic, acute to obtuse at apex. Inflorescence not exceeding terminal leaves; tepals covered on outer surface with globose or saucer-shaped vesicular hairs; pericarp membranous to succulent. Seed c. 1.5 mm diam.
CVU, MuF, VRiv. Also NSW. Recorded in Victoria on the basis of an 1878 collection purportedly from Daylesford. However, the remoteness from the main centre of distribution of the subspecies (south-central New South Wales), and the lack of contemporary observations suggests that the Victorian record may be a result of confusion of labels.
