Author's notes

After ACT Parks Ranger Luke McElhinney discovered the first C. atrovespa on 20 Oct (3 days ago), I checked the site on 22 Oct. I was unable to find the same plant that Luke found, but after combing the area, approx 30-50m away from the original site, I found this one. So there must be multiple C. atrovespa plants on Mount Majura which is great news.
