Following the heavy May rains, this little annual herb has appeared in considerable numbers in the damper, shadier areas along the erosion gully. It forms an attractive dense pale green mat on the surface of the soil. It is monoecious and normally has a pair of tiny male and female flowers growing side by side in the leaf axils. (August 2009)
