I think this is Coronidium gunnianum rather than monticola or scorpioides. There is no basal rosette of leaves. The leaves appear to be smooth rather than rough on top, green on top rather than silvery, and much lighter coloured on the lower side. The leaf tips do not apoear to have a mucro (small hard tip).
Jackie, what do you think?

I hate to reopen this can of worms, but I think this might be monticola. I sent a bunch of specimens and photos to Neville Walsh, all from fairly high altitude but some in grassland, some in woodland and some in forest, and only the grassland ones looked like typical alpine C. monticola with a fairly compact growth habit and silvery leaves. The rest were stragglier and greener, but NW is happy to call it all monticola, just variable depending on habitat. None of them were growing near water either, unlike gunnianum, which does tend to. The jury is still out on my escarpment swamps plants. I'll have to collect some better specimens of those, but Neville is thinking scorpioides for them currently (sigh).
