Author's notes

Is this Comesperma? Found alongside alpine peat bog. I probably didn't take an acceptable photo. Ginini Flats.

Matt, agree not the greatest photo but given the location it isn't going to be anything else. If you stop still long enough to get a decent image the ants cover everything, they might be small but they know how to bite.
