    An erect plant about a foot high with thin dichotomous branches. The flowers were very small, about 5 mm wide with bright yellow petals. Leaves were small, lanceolate and some had indented margins. Spotted growing amongst other vegetation like dandelion, sorrel and grass by a walking track, in a national park. It was difficult to see this plant separate to the others growing in the area but the bright yellow flowers looked like little stars suspended amongst tall grass.

    Many thousands of plants at this site. Mostly single-stemmed and upright but occasionally multi-stemmed and ascending stems on plants one foot wide. Flowers very small, same size as Cicendia and Sebaea.
