EGL, EGU, MonT. Also NSW, ACT. Known in Victoria from heathlands, shrublands and subalpine woodlands amongst granite rocks or on soils derived from granite near the summit of Mt Tingaringy, on Mount Buffalo and at The Watchtower (Neilson Crag) in the Snowy Range.
Genetically and morphologically similar to the variable and widespread Logania albiflora and possibly just a local high-altitude form of this species as intimated in a molecular study of the group (Foster et al. 2014).
