Australia, New Caledonia. Plants cultivated and naturalized in the Iberian peninsula were mistakenly given this name, but have been shown to be M. laetum (q.v.). Besides, some authors separate M. acuminatum in Australia from M. tenuifolium in New Caledonia. In this confused situation, it is not clear to what extent M. tenuifolium is cultivated.
