Author's notes

Smaller group of plants about 50m up the hill from sighting 3387240. Again only one plant with signs of (past) flowering. Similar leaves to 3387240 but longer dark brown / purple flowering stem. Guessing maybe also C. valida on location / leaf? Cheers Glen

A fertilised C. valida with an elongated stem to aid seed dispersal.
