Differentiate from co-existing Noon-flower by triangular cross-section of leaves, paler leaves that are often red-tinged, and flowers that do not ascend above leaves (in Noon-flower flowers sit above leaves).
Large, hairy caterpillar found feeding on Cattle Bush (Alectryon oleifolius subsp. canescens). Size similar to adult pointer finger, both in length and girth.
Thanks to Cathy Powers and Peter Marriott for identification.
Location is where this species was discovered for Victoria in 2011, until now the only population known in Victoria. The plant in the first two pics was in dry soil at the outer edge of a gilgai and exposed to full sun. This made this plant a little depauperate. This plant also had the best flower at this location. Plants were found both sides of the track in the numerous small depressions/gilgais, always at the outer edge of the depression.
