In Watsonia 15: 125 (1984) there is a 1981 record by M. Gregory of a plant found on the ballast of the old tramway at the Suardal marble quarry. Carl Farmer found two plants in the same area in June 2003. In September 2004 when we visited the site during the BPS visit we found the number of plants had increased to 8.
