Significant sighting

Tapirlord noted:
1 Aug 2022

A good sized population (with a number of young plants), of this species which is uncommon in the ACT. Much of the known occurence is on granite in the scabby range area, further highlighting this as an unusal record, there are two other records from the Gingera area.

User's notes

A good Sized population in subalpine woodland on the subalpine woodland. Lots of young plants, my estimate is probabaly conservative
