Taxonomic notes: Records of A. scoparia from S.Aust. are based on wrong interpretations of A. conferta which often also has a colourless terminal hair on the leaves but, unlike those of A. scoparia, the apex is usually cuspidate and recurved at least when young (see Burbidge & Gray (1970) Flora of the A.C.T.).
