Thank you A O'Brien for confirming the id of this species for us

General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee, SA), the Adelaide Hills and elsewhere
~170mm tall.
Unusually for this species we just found one specimen, in a very heavy rainfall year. Often they'd blanket an area. This gave us the opportunity to get the full plant characterised without others interfering.
In wetter areas the leaves look smoother & juicier, but are still actually quite thin.
