EGU, HSF, MonT, VAlp. Also Tas. Rare in Victoria, known from only cliffline scrubs at c. 1200 m in the upper Macalister and Wonnangatta River catchments, and at lower altitude, but similar habitats, near the gorge tract of the Snowy River near Wulgulmerang.
Victorian plants were previously regarded as a distinct subspecies (subsp. coriacea (Paul G.Wilson) Paul G.Wilson). They tend to have shorter, coarser leaves than Tasmanian examples, but there is overlap.
