A few years ago my sister collected a specimen of this plant in the Reserve and had it identified but I could never find the plant again at that time. However I’ve finally found a plant beside the eastern firebreak. It is a small prostrate to semi-erect herb covered in glandular and other hairs. It is an annual or short-lived perennial. (April 2010)
