General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Riverland and elsewhere
For years we thought these were Lemon Beauty Heads (Calocephalus citreus).
But they flower at different times of the year.
We suspect, due to the dry conditions, they are much smaller than specimens we've seen elsewhere, hence their flower heads are sometimes round rather than elongated.
