This looks much more like Corysanthes hispida, a colony of which grows in this location. Acianthus leaves are more heart-shaped and and tend to be slightly raised above ground level.

Many thanks Cath and I agree with you. I should have also checked the undersides of the leaves as well. I distracted by a nearby fox.
