This plant about 1.2m tall, very long leaves and large flowers (relative to the other subsp. depicted nearby in observation 11370).
Two plants flowering following a late burn (some time Autumn-Winter, not sure when).
Note eggs in upper right corner of 2nd photo.
Recent burn has revealed numerous plants (we saw 25ish so possibly 100ish overall) spread over a narrow area with limits as detailed by the 3 plants depicted here.
Everything fits with previous finds ... dry, wildflower area; flowers variable in size but mostly very small compared to subsp. armeria; leaves hairy and short; overall plant short (with one exception) compared to the long-leaved, large-flowered, 1m+ tall subsp. armeria plants nearby. Again, the two subspp. never cross re distribution. 11371 shows nearest subsp. armeria plants.

subsp. pilosifolium now seems to be found over most of the north-facing slope of Mt Charlie including the lower areas. I haven't noticed them this low down before.
Sepals about 1.5mm long. Flower/fruit is much smaller than for P. varia. This plant found in a damper roadside, reconfirms the species for Riddells Creek as found by I. Lunt in 1984/5. First time I've seen it in Riddells Creek.
