Possibly stoloniferous, sprawling to weakly erect herb to c. 40 cm high. Leaves cauline, obovate, 0.5–7.5 cm long, 1–9 mm wide, mainly with 3–9 teeth but uppermost leaves entire, glabrous or with glandular hairs. Flowering branches extending well above the leaves, usually minutely glandular hairy, but becoming glabrous in fruit; bracts 15–25, c. 1-seriate, c. equal, more or less oblanceolate, 2.5–4.6 mm long, 0.6–1 mm wide, acute, glandular-hairy; ligules c. 10 mm long, white or mauve. Cypselas obovate or elliptic, 2.2–2.8 mm long, 1.4–1.7 mm wide, brown, somewhat discolorous with margins paler; lateral faces smooth; wing-like margins dissected, with straight to curved eglandular hairs; pappus of a few bristles c. 0.4–0.5 mm long, slightly shorter than to slightly exceeding apical notch.

EGL, EGU, HSF, MonT, VAlp. Apparently endemic to eastern Victoria where it grows in rock crevices mostly along the banks of the Snowy, Genoa and Cann Rivers, but with disjunct occurrences at Moroka Gorge and Porters Creek further west. Brachyscome riparia could also be expected to occur in the extreme south-east of New South Wales.
