Comment
Eutaxia diffusa is a prostrate matting shrub which occurs in all Australian states, except the Northern Territory. The species was named in 1858 by Victorian Government Botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, reclassified in 1957 as a subspecies of Eutaxia microphylla, before Mueller’s original name was reinstated in 2010.
