Significant sighting

1 Feb 2018

This is a common coastal species and reaches its inland limit in the ACT with only four recent recorded locations. Most of the ACT records are from 1950 -1960 - this recent record is from near one of the 1960 records so good to see it is still around. this is another species that we know little about but with a few more records will eb able to take of the rare plant list.
