Senecio pectinatus (Asteraceae) 2:364
Senecio 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
