sensu Fl. Victoria 2:660 (1994) APNI
Plants resembling Arthropodium strictum but usually somewhat smaller (to c. 80 cm high) differing in having leaves usually with distantly ciliate margins and flowers usually several per node, on erect or spreading pedicels to 25 mm long. Flowers Oct.–Dec.
CVU, DunT, GipP, Gold, GGr, HNF, MuF, NIS, VRiv, VVP, Wim. Chiefly an entity from northern Victoria, and occurring on both heavier alluvial soils and skeletal substrates (e.g. Barmah, Cobram area, Warby Range, Tallangatta), also scattered in the west (e.g. Serra Range in the Grampians, Hamilton area and Inverleigh near Geelong) and the Gippsland Plains near Bairnsdale.
The relationship between this and Arthropodium strictum (with which it is largely coextensive in Victoria, but sometimes later-flowering) requires further investigation. While plants generally have more than one flower per inflorescence node, it is common for some individuals within a population to be single-flowered at nodes. Although difficult to describe, the scents of this and A. strictum differ slightly.
