Significant sighting

Tapirlord noted:
1 Aug 2022

New location of this locally rare species and first from the Gingera/Ginini area. Given the condition of the plants i reckon we are also probably looking at the altitudinal limit of this species.

User's notes

Two plants below a rocky outcrop 10m or so from the stockyard spur track. The plants seem stressed by the high altitude
