General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
The plant itself is similar size to M. muelleri, but the stems are prostrate (low to the ground, not standing up), which are described as "limp" or "lax". Each plant is upto 15mm wide.
The flowers are also petaless, ~3mm tip to tip, but much more "cobwebby". Being a daisy it has florets, about 5 in this case, that make up the flower. All the florets curve backwards, except the one on the ground which is held in place point outwards.
We found a couple of large areas near each other, within our Callitris forest, with hundreads of plants in full flower at the begining of August.
