Electronic Flora of South Australia species Fact Sheet
Citation: Lindley in T.L. Mitchell, Three Exped. Int. eastern Austral. 2:48 (1838).
Synonymy: C. rubra Smith var. megacalyx J. Black, Fl. S. Aust. 496 (1948).
Common name: Rock (or smooth) correa.
Biology: A point of distinction is the strong, often pungent or sweet lemon smell of crushed leaves. Also, C. glabra is almost entirely confined to rocky habitats.
Taxonomic notes: Extensive hybridisation recorded in Vic. but yet to be reported in S.Aust. Plants referrable to C. glabra occur on central KI and warrant further study. The taxonomic limits of C. glabra, some varieties of C. reflexa and C. schlechtendalii are confused and the specific-varietal limits need to be redefined. Such a revision is not possible here. However, the following is a likely outcome. C. glabra var. glabra. Glabrous lamina, variable corolla size and colour; calyx small. C. glabra var. leucoclada. Large tomentose flocculose lamina, large flower, especially calyx; green corolla. See also under C. schlechtendalii, C. reflexa var. coriacea and C. reflexa var. nummulariifolia.
