Author's notes

Growing in extreme abundance in the dry bed of Maffra Lake. It was adopting a very prostrate habit on bare mud (all the red material in the 4th photo is this species) and scrambling up through sedge stems in the more vegetated areas (1st 2 photos). I haven't seen this species behaving like this here before and I've visited the site several times with the lake at various levels. Possibly introduced by waterfowl? Usually a saltmarsh plant.
