Notes. This
morphological variant is given formal recognition, as it may well form a
monophyletic group: it is geographically restricted to the northern part of NSW
and the southern corner of Queensland, the plants investigated were all
apomictic, and morphologically quite strikingly different. However, there are
some intermediate forms (e.g. Rupp in NSW3388).
