Flowers

Inflorescence large. Individual flowers sessile or very shortly pedicellate. Calyx lobes very small and inconspicuous. Petals about 2 mm long, marked by a relatively large and conspicuous raised midrib on the adaxial surface; apex of the ovary flat or slightly domed. Styles five.

Fruit

Fruits +/- globular, about 7 mm diam. Stigma persistent, resembling a miniature 5-armed starfish, appressed to the apex of the fruit within a tonsure-like marking.

Seedlings

Cotyledons ovate, about 6 x 4 mm. First pair of leaves with fine pointed teeth. At the tenth leaf stage: leaflets ovate, apex apiculate, unequal-sided at the base, a few spine-like hairs along the midrib on the upper surface of the leaflet blade and around the margins of the crenate leaflet blade, teeth inconspicuous.

Distribution and Ecology

Occurs in CYP and NEQ and southwards to coastal central Queensland. A rare species known only from a few collections at Iron Range, Hutchinson Creek, Kuranda Range, Edmonton, Mission Beach and Conway. Altitudinal range from near sea level to 300 m.
