I am fairly sure this is in the family Lamiaceae, but cannot key it to anything sensible. I also tried Plantaginaceae, the family which now includes a lot of what used to be in Scrophulariacea. No good either. I suspect someone needs to have a specimen in hand to get an ID.

Photo orientation may be upside down - possibly white Ajuga?

Prostrate plant so orientation is a matter of what side of the plant I was on. Flowers were very small, probably a couple of mm.

It might be an aberrant form of Scutellaria mollis, which Vicflora says is trailing rather than prostrate. it is the only Lamiaceae in my draft key to plants of SE NSW with white flowers that small (Plantnet says about 10 mm long). Scutellaria has a peculiar calyx, with a fold protruding from the upper lip.

Mike I think this is one to collect and take to Dave Albrecht at the Herbarium for ID - it has me stumped
