Leaves as in the typical subspecies. Fruiting bracteoles subglobose, not compressed, apex flattish or rounded, unwinged; apical beak mostly less than 1 mm long. Fruits mainly Aug.–Feb.

MuM, MSB, RobP, VRiv, Wim. Also WA, NT, SA, NSW. Largely co-extensive with subsp. lindleyi (with which it intergrades). An isolated specimen at Melbourne Herbarium, purportedly from Nhill, collected 1895, is possibly the result of mislabelling.
