Check the locally endemic and threatened plant Phyllota humifusa.

Hiya - Phyllota isn't in our species taxonomy yet. I'll add it in :)

Could someone with a collecting permit collect it while it is in flower and send the dried pressed specimen to either Sydney or Canberra herbarium. They appear to be as slow as each other. Just to be absolutely certain of the ID.

There are thousands of this species in Wingecarribee with main populations at Penrose and High Range.
Specimens and seeds have been collected in the last few years by Canberra Herbarium staff.
