Botany picture #181: Cicendia quadrangularis
Cicendia quandrangularis (Gentianaceae), Australia, 2014. This tiny little gentian is an ephemeral weed introduced to Australia from the Americas. We saw it a few weeks ago at Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve. It is easily overlooked, but I had seen the other species of the genus before, and so I noticed it.
