Author's notes

Colony under pressure from dry conditions and overgrazing by macropods.


   1 Nov 2018
With hairs appressed (pressed close) to the stenpms, and calyx (cupping the flower) teeth a lot shorter than the calyx tube, I think this is probably monticola. It is a pity that that there is not a decent photo of the leaves.

Just goes to show that IDing from photos is a minefield.
