Author's notes

Growing in clifftop Melaleuca armillaris scrub burnt in 2014. Despite being on a clifftop this is quite a damp site with a lot of slope above it and a sheltered aspect. ID is definite. Flowers were not mature, but well developed enough to see they have 6 stamens, not 3. This plus continuous pith (3rd photo), less than 40 striations on the culm and widely spaced flowers, make it definitely this species. The culms are also glossy, as described in the Flora of NSW, an unusual feature among Juncus spp.
