Author's notes

first signs of resprouting of this plant seen 23 days after the 2020 Border Fire. this species has been more widely distributed on the block since the fire.

A close-up of a plasticky, twisted culm would be nice if you can get one. But happy to confirm it since I saw it on your place. After the 2014 fire on Green Cape, the place was awash with this species. With all the shrubs reduced to seedlings or reprouting slowly and hence shorter than this sedge the whole Cape took on quite a savannah-like look for a while.

I’ll add a photo of a twisted culm when it becomes obvious on this plant.
