General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee)
Our one and only specimen (so far) is tucked behind a big Caletris, which has then had a major branch fall on it. So we've not been able to get a photo of the whole.
Since it's so shady, we also suspect this is why there is no fruit on it.
