Taxonomic notes: C. uncata as here defined comprises several more or less distinct entities. A variant occurring on sea cliffs in the SL, KI and SE regions is a low-growing shrub with crowded leaves prominently tomentose beneath and branchlets roughened by the decurrent leaf bases. Some populations from woodland in the SL and SE regions have white-cobwebby young growth and sparsely muricate upper leaf surfaces. The variant common throughout mallee areas is a very glutinous subglabrous shrub with lower leaf surfaces obscured by thickened margins, and involucres 3-4 mm long.
