EGL, EGU, GipP, HNF, HSF, SnM, VAlp, VRiv. Also Qld, NSW. Moderately widespread in open-forests of foothill country of the north-east (Whitfield, Mansfield, Mt Buffalo areas), with scattered occurrences south of the Divide (e.g. Pakenham, Lake Mountain, Genoa). Possibly more widespread but overlooked due to its similarity to A. milleflorum.
Differs from A. milleflorum in its generally smaller size, white to pale green anthers, white filament hairs and smaller, strongly reflexed, greenish-pink perianth segments.
