Feddes Repert. 89: 119 (1978) APNI
Procumbent, tufted or weakly erect subshrub to c. 20 cm high. Leaves spreading, 5–10 mm long, somewhat fleshy. Fruiting perianth burr-like, c. 1.5 mm high, 2–3 mm diam. (not including copious woolly covering), outer appendages 2–3 mm long, inner appendages slightly shorter. Fruits mostly Sep.–Mar.
LoM, MuF, MuM, MSB, RobP, VRiv, VVP. WA, NT, SA, NSW. Locally rather common in far north-western Victoria (south-east to near Terrick Terrick). A specimen at MEL purportedly collected near Bacchus Marsh in 1912 must be considered dubious. Occurs chiefly on heavy alluvial soils and cracking clays, occasionaly on stabilized dunes in mallee scrub.
