I found some C. confusus specimens in flower near this site last season. The leaf is distinctive in this species, but I do not think they are C. confusus.

Old Coach Road Walk. These plants were growing in the mowed grassy area adjacent to the car park. I am doing my best guess here as I don't think i have ever met this species before...any suggestions would be gladly appreciated. Leaves were glab, which troubled me when making an ID.

This may not be T. hatchii, however it has traits for; Cilia copious and above column arms; post anther lobe overtopping anther; column horseshoe shaped from above. Traits against; Inrolled column apex (possibly weather conditions); sepals and petals two different colours; flower size very small 12mm across (which made it seem like T. intermedia); overall short stature of plant 150-200mm high. Sorry to bug you guys again, what do you think? @jeremy_rolfe @pjd1

A new species for me. Great to see this species in flower early, as a result of the very early season in the wellington region. Thanks for the mission Jeremy.
