General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee), and elsewhere
Can be confused with Billy Buttons. Instead of the compound flower head being a whole ball, it's half a yellow ball, with a green hairy cup under.
The cup is hard to see from above. The compound flowers show many patterns through their short life, hence the large quantity of photos.
Has hairy succulent green basal leaves.
See Little Buttons for more description and comparison.
