Endemic in Victoria. Restricted to the Gippsland Lakes hinterland (Providence Ponds, Dutson, Robinson, and south of Longford). Prior to the rediscovery of this subspecies in 2005, it was previously last collected in 1969. Known populations occur in Pinus radiata plantations on sandy soils, south of Longford. Capable of regenerating after fire from soil-stored seed.

This is the type subspecies.
