Taxonomic notes: The majority of populations in S.Aust. belong to a race with stems arising from below ground level from a horizontal rhizome, and thickish leaves. Populations in the mountains of eastern Australia have more membranous leaves and stems arising from the root-stock at ground-level, as in S. aspericocca. The circumscription of S. monogyna may be better broadened to encompass over 10 such poorly differentiated races across southern and eastern Australia, some, such as S. aspericocca, being currently recognised as species.
