Lomandra as a genus has undergone a lot of name changes over the years, both by herbariums, and later by the industry. In Victoria fine leaf Lomandra that have longifolia characteristics such as these are always listed under the synonym name Lomandra longifolia subsp. exilis. In the past Lomandra fluviatilis has been called Lomandra longifolia subsp. fluviatilis or Xerotes longifolia var. fluviatilis.
