General Species Information:
Found in the Murray Mallee SA, Adelaide Hills and possibly elsewhere
A very atypical specimen.
Small petals, short, woolly, curved, linear, convex leaves, small brown buds.
2 specimens in close proximity, in sand, looking the same.
Walking up to them we thought they were Eutaxia microphylla; clearly not of course.
Peter informed us these are under review and the name will likely change soon.
