Simple, clean white 25mm flowers in clusters of up to 10 with six petals. The flowers were on top of a single, plain, tubular stem about 40cm above ground. The base was a clump of narrow, long, pointed, dark green leaves.
Near a small lake in a local nature reserve.
Aboriginals ate the tubers either raw or cooked.
These flowers were already host to some small crab spiders which look like they're doing quite well for themselves. The spiders must be about 2mm.
