This species is considered to be endemic to Norfolk Is. There is however a specimen of it at BRI labelled in Allan Cunningham’s hand as “Brisbane River, Cunningham 23”. It is probably mislabeled. No other material of the species has been seen from Australia and according to P.S.Green (in litt.) there is a K sheet of Melicope littoralis which is labeled in Cunningham’s hand as “Norfolk Island, Cunningham 23”. F.M. Bailey, Queensland Fl. 1: 201 (1899), reported M. littoralis from Queensland (as Evodia littoralis) citing the above Brisbane R. collection and a Field Naturalists’ Excursion collection from Eumundi. The latter is M. vitiflora. There are some other reports of M. littoralis (as E. littoralis) from Australia (e.g. N.C.W.Beadle, Student’s Fl. NE New South Wales 4: 545 (1980), but they are probably erroneous and most likely based on misidentified M. vitiflora).
