Hi. Came across the AusBonsai thread in research and haven't been much more successful for current listings. Maybe Shibataea kumasaca as a possible substitute on ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/very-rare-groundcover-bamboo-shibataea-kumasasa-plant-/200564283739?pt=AU_Plants_Seeds_Bulbs&hash=item2eb290195b), though it doesn't have the silver edging as the leaves age desiccation of the leaf edge rather than a variegation.
Trawling through memory for possibly useful sightings, Wollongong Botanic Garden has a bank of it in their Japanese garden. Maybe a deal could be done with their friendly staff.

Thanks a plenty for the quick reply. I will be sure to chase up the Garden at Wollongong and see what they can do.
I am glad you found the thread over at ausbonsai. If you ever have questions about bonsai and the species we use be sure to pay us another visit :)
