Only recorded sighting of this species in Aranda Bushland. Congratulations Matt on another key find.

Author's notes

Two plants in Aranda. I'm not sure if anyone has recorded these here yet. One was in flower, the other looked like the buds had been glued together...

I suspect that is the first record of them in Aranda Bushland. I checked today and they are doing well this year on Black Mountain.

There's one growing out of the middle of a walking track on Black Mountain! :D
