Author's notes

The 2nd photo is good for ID of var hygrometrica vs var splendida, showing the relatively long style and a short stigma at the tip (unlike splendida where they are of similar length). I notice there are a few hairs at the tepal tips, but the visible bit of tepal underside is not hairy, so I'm pretty sure it is not var villosisepala. I did have a look in the field at the underside and they looked glabrous. Couldn't get any leaves in shot as they were all hiding in the grass, but I'm pretty confident of the ID. Numerous in a dampish minor drainage line with a grassy groundcover 3 years post-fire.
