Critters on the daisies, (or a Castiarina trifasciata and another bugglywug on the Asteraceae)
Day 26, a plant a day, Lowlands Coastal Reserve 19 November 2020. Asteraceae
I don’t usually choose to feature plants that I don’t already know the name of.
But I had to choose these daisies, because of the beautiful Castiarina trifasciata (? I think?) beetle hanging on for dear life.
Lets just say they are Asteraceae! Possibly Asteridea pulverulenta.
Our native daisies in Lowlands Coastal Reserve include senecios and everlastings. I featured everlastings in my Day 13 blog entry on 6th November, and plan to feature senecios soon.
Writing this daily blog featuring a plant a day and walking daily is my fundraising effort for Bush Heritage #groundworkchallenge .

Lowlands Coastal Reserve is on Menang Boodja — country. I celebrate the strength, resilience and capacity of the Menang Noongar people who are the traditional owners of the land.
Lowlands Coastal Reserve is managed by the local community and the City of Albany. Bush Heritage Australia manage many other wonderful reserves.
