Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Endemic

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: vulnerable (v)

Leaves obovate, c. 4 mm long, 2 mm wide, flat or slightly concave, more or less fleshy, upper surface smooth, lower surface prominently glandular; petals glabrous (or glabrescent) within. Flowers mostly Sep.–Oct.

DunT, GGr, Wim. Endemic to rocky areas of the northern Grampians (e.g. Mt Zero, Flat Rock, Golton Gorge), the Black Range (west of the Grampians) and the Lawloit Range.

Some populations of P. angustifolia subsp. montana may resemble P. difformis, but are clearly distinguished by the distribution of hairs in rows along young branchlets, the petals which are glabrous outside, and the lack of a sunken terminal gland at the leaf apex.
