Author's notes

Probably around 100 live, flowering plants in total along the Mt Imlay walking track, flowering after the 4/1/2020 wildfire. Plants on the lower part of the track had finished flowering and were producing seed capsules, those part-way up still had flowers on the south-facing side of the stem but had finished on the warmer north side while those on top (800 metres) were still flowering. A few had not survived the fire, and some had started to resprout leaves but then died. This population has suffered from the impacts of phytophthora, so the non-survivors may have been moribund before the fire.
