Habit

Prostrate or decumbent perennial to about 30 cm high widespread in grassland and open forest. Leaves with 2 leaflets; lower leaflets more ovate, upper ones lanceolate to linear. Pea flower, yellow to orange with dark red markings. This could be Z. muriculata although Z. dyctiocarpa is more common and certainly grows here.

Foliage

There are three Zornias one might find generally but only one listed for D’Aguilar National Park (nearby to where this was found on Mt Coot-tha) that is, Zornia muriculata ssp. angustata.
