There are enormous numbers of D. antarctica in the Brindabellas. I'll leave it to the database manager(s) to decide whether we need so many individual sightings.

Yes, I realise they are common. The sightings are a record of location as part of a survey of the firetrails.

Worth looking out for Gleichenia species on moist banks on water seeps on the west side of tracks below the main Mt Franklin Rd. Large shaggy conglomerates. We found G. microphylla and G. dicarpa in two places on the north-south roads. That was before the 2003 fires, but they are hard to kill.

Yes, thanks, I was looking out for Gleichenia after finding some nearby on Bendora Rd a couple of years ago
