Philotheca myoporoides subsp. myoporoides

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Shrub (rarely a small tree) to c. 2.5(–4.5) m high. Leaves narrow-elliptic to oblanceolate, (20–)30–120(–155) mm long, (7–)10–18(–33) mm wide, flat to slightly concave above, midrib distinct on lower surface, apex acute to rounded. Inflorescences 3–8-flowered; peduncles 2–20 mm long. Flowers Jul.–Jan.

EGL, EGU, GipP, HNF, HSF, NIS, VAlp. Also NSW, ACT. Typically a species of wetter forest and scrubs, often in rocky sites; mostly above 200 (to c. 1500) m altitude.

A number of localised forms exist, some perhaps warranting further taxonomic segretation. Plants from the Lake Mountain area may be particularly large-leaved.
