Vittadinia cuneata var. morrisii N.T.Burb.

Brunonia 5: 52 (1982) APNI

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: rare (r)

Leaves flat to weakly conduplicate; hairs on leaves and stems fine, curled, usually subappressed, with thread-like tips, young growth and leaf-axils often almost cottony (but not obscuring the surface). Flowers Oct.–Nov.

Gold, LoM, MuF, MuM, NIS, VRiv, Wim. Also SA, NSW. Apparently rare in Victoria, known only from Dimboola, Horsham, Donald, Wychitella, Maryborough and Bendigo areas.

The indumentum of this variety is intermediate between that of var. cuneata and V. gracilis, and it seems possible that plants currently treated as var. morrisii are hybrids between the two. Further investigation is warranted.
