This was the commonest of the Conostylis species we saw during our six week stay in Australia. The very long bristly hairs on the leaves are characteristic. Ther e are two sub species one of which, ssp dasys is rare and known only froma very small area in South western Australia. This one, ssp setigera, is much the commoner of these two endemics.
