This species appears to be very widely distributed over northern New South Wales, extending from the Rylstone (Mudgoe) district northeast to near the Queensland border, and as far east as Emmaville. The range of the species requires to be more fully deflned, but is appears to be found over the greater portion of New England and over a considerable area of the western slopes of this tableland, XLV. lrvingiaceae') novae a Ph. van Tieghem descriptae.

S m i t h a rapport6 du C o n g o , en 1859, des rameaux avec fleurs et fruits d'une plante que Baillon a identiflee EL tort dans 1'Herbier du Museum avec 1'1. tenuifdiu du Cameroun et du B6nin. Elle en diffkre beaucoup par ses feuilles coriaces plus allonghes, mesurant 7 centimetres sur 3, par ses rameaux et petioles moins gr6les et grisbtres, comme les gaines stipulaires. Les pkdoncules floraux, gristtres aussi, mais tr&s grBles, sont fortement renfl6s aux nceuds. Le disque hypogyne y est plus developpd et le fruit a la m6me dimension que d a m 1'1.
