It was known to Indigenous Australians before its discovery and naming by Europeans; for example, the Gunai people of Gippsland called it Birrna.Because of its wide range it would have a name in a number of other indigenous languages, but these are now lost. In 2001, a search of historical archives for recorded indigenous names of Victorian flora and fauna failed to find a single name for the species.
