Tiny flowers with spiny seed box. About 6mm wide.
Meandering, twining, clambering, climbing...
In rainforest national park among other ground covers and debris.
We have two species of Sigesbeckia. S.orientalis is also known as 'Indian weed' and 'St. Paul's wort'
S.australiensis is now on my to-find list.
Comparing to other images it seems this specimen is 'leggy' The leaves are smaller, the inter-nodes are longer. Is this to be expected in a 'dark' forest?
This is a type of daisy! ;-)
