Author's notes

The relatively stout style column with the stigmatic lobes at the top nearly as long as the column make this var splendida, though the feature is a bit subtle. I had to look at numerous photos of plants from high elevation swamps and coastal sites to convince myself I could see the difference. I think var splendida tends to occur at higher elevations, which the Flora of NSW confirms.
