This quite stunning plant is Hibbertia selkii. Lucia Quearry from the Friends of the Porongurups groups reports that it was found by Tim Saggers, the Ranges Link fencing contractor, while fencing off bush in their section of the Link. It was an overcast day and the colours were luminous, which increased the excitement. Only a few plants were initially found so the group has raced around looking for more of them. Peter Luscombe, also of Ranges Link, says that although it’s not on the rare and endangered list, prior to finding this population on private land, it had only been known from the Stirling Range National Park.
