Author's notes

This plant appeared about 2 years after a localised fire killed a small patch of Melaleuca armillaris scrub at Boulder Bay, hidden in a sea of Goodenia ovata regrowth. A specimen was sent to the Sydney RBG. It keys to Commersonia rugosa, but does not match other specimens of that species: "an interesting specimen".

The RBG has redetermined the specimens I sent from Boulder Bay as being a good match to Commersonia dasyphylla, except for their small stature (around 30cm high, when they should be 1-2m), but apparently this species often flowers when still very young.
