Goodenia albiflora is confined to the southern parts of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia where it is often found in the dry beds of ephemeral streams.

The silvery hairs in the UV pic are fabulous.

I had always thought - as "everyone" knows - that all Goodenia species were yellow - see my other posts. Seems I was wrong AGAIN. :wacko:

The yellow flowered species give the UV signatures you might expect but I can't get my head around how different this one is.

Perhaps this is "the exception that proves the rule" whatever that means.
