EGL, EGU, HNF, MonT, NIS, SnM, VAlp. Also NSW. In Victoria, restricted to montane eastern part of the State (e.g. Omeo, Nunniong Plateau, Mitta Mitta, upper Genoa River). Grows in eucalypt woodland and open forest, often in gullies or on rocky slopes near creeks.
Some collections from the Nunniong Plateau have relatively short leaves, and could be confused with Grevillea alpivaga, which however, has leaves with the lower surface partly exposed. Also possibly confused with G. micrantha, which has scabrid leaf veins.
