Flowering stems usually few. Basal leaves oblanceolate to spathulate, to 45 mm long, usually obtuse. Terminal inflorescence rather dense, (3–)4–8(–12)-flowered; margins of calyx-lobes more or less smooth, unthickened; corolla-tube 3–4 mm long, lobes 11–12 mm long. Flowers Jan.–Apr.

HNF, SnM, VAlp, VRiv, VVP. Apparently endemic to Victoria, occurring throughout the Snowfields in moist grassland, bog margins and open heathland, rarely entering woodland communities. A pre-1900 record from Camperdown is probably an erroneous locality.
