General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA) and elsewhere
Generally darker green to limestone sida, but limestone sida can be as green.
We differentiate them from the "hair" on the leaf and the habit.
Corrugated has tufts of "hair" on an otherwise glaborous surface. Limestone is velted; very find hair covering the whole leaf.
Corrugated seems to have a more wood bush like appearance. Limestone has much more of an annual, prostrate appearance.
These are just our observations as it appears these plants confuse the experts as well. With the taxonomy sea sawing between different various species & sub-species. This variety is not currently recognised at a Federal level, but is at a State level.
