It was very interesting to discover that the only other recorded specimen of this plant in the Brisbane area was one collected at Mt Gravatt by C. T. White (the then Government Botanist) in 1918. However it is relatively inconspicuous and may often be overlooked. It is an annual or biennial herb growing to about 80 cm with small yellow flowers. (April 2009)
