pectinatus is a reasonably widespread native, alpine rosette herb,
especially on the dolerite mountains. It grows on quite wet, peaty
soils. The leaves are very distinctive - they are small (only a few cm
long), pinnately divided almost to the midrib and are curved upwards
(rather like a pasta server).
Senecio albogilvus was
previously known as Senecio pectinatus var ochroleuchreus
