CVU, EGL, EGU, GipP, HSF, OtP, OtR, Strz. Also NSW. In Victoria principally in the east, between Buchan and the New South Wales border, with disjunct western occurrences near Labertouche and Chapple Vale. Usually occurring on coarse, granitic sands supporting heathland or heathy woodland. An isolated population at Bullengarook, Between Bacchus Marsh and Woodend doubtfully represents a natural occurrence.
