Found in the Adelaide Hills, and elsewhere
Notice the 3 leaves; all 3 with significant length past the point where the leaves narrow.
In the "Whole" photo you can see the upper leaf is quite long compared with ssp brevifolia above.
As it turns out the purple patterns are not diagnostic in that the flowers can be totally white. We've not seen this, but variations in thickness, colour and purpled edged petals are all variable within the species.
