This pretty little plant was spotted by Val during a walk on the bushy slopes of Douglas. What species had she found? At first everyone was stumped. Later, Nanette and Beth worked out the answer: Glycine pescadrensis.

Glycine pescadrensis is a native plant that has been recorded infrequently across much of eastern Australia (Atlas of Living Australia). We found no other details online. If you are familiar with this species, please contact
