EGU, GipP. Also NSW. Known in Victoria from a single young plant in the Upper Genoa River, possibly originating from seed washed downstream from plants across the border in New South Wales. Subsequent attempts to relocate this plant have been unsuccessful, and it is likely that this individual has not persisted at that site. Also sparingly established from a planting at Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula.
