Author's notes

Single plant, c. 30cm high, 4 leaves, 3 flowers, growing in themeda grassland, in a not particularly moist area. Being October, I think it it too late for it to be chryseopsis, which in my experience flowers earlier on the coast (August in the Towamba cemetery). This is only our second sighting in 30 years of a single plant of this species on our place.

I can't tell D. chryseopsis from D. monticola in a photo. I hope David Jones looks at this.

David has ID'd this as chryseopsis, and the Towamba cemetery plants as something else, possibly an unnamed species.
