Matches all points of description in Flora of Victoria (online), except that sepals are 7mm long versus max 4mm in description. (Fine hairs on sepals are too small to see in photo, but were examined under microscope.) Have not examined taproot or seed. Measured several stems to 1.8m but they may be longer as I could not get to the base of the plant.
Male (left) and female Crested Shrike-tit in suburban garden, Avondale Heights. Appear to be nesting nearby. Male gets aggressive and attacks its image in car side mirrors and windows.
NB male has blacker throat - female olive green.
Found dead in seasonal pool beside Maribyrnong River. ID not 100% guaranteed; back not as warty as usual but eyes also collapsed so may be due to dehydration/decay. Only other possible frog is Golden Bell Grass Frog, which is not found in Melbourne area.
