CVU, MuF, VRiv. Also NSW. Until collected in 2008 at Pine Grove in northern Victoria, the taxon was recorded in Victoria on the basis of an 1878 collection purportedly from Daylesford, which may be a result of confusion of labels. Recently it has also been collected at Terrick Terrick National Park, and near Nathalia.
