Too many images, but hoping to have included all the diagnostic features in one shot or another.
These are in a group of approximately 30 plants in under a group of Mount Lofty Pines, (otherwise known as "Oyster Bay Pines", Callitris rhomboidea)

And you can count me as another who had been unaware of these. Seen in Australian Fauna & Flora.

I am delighted!
I recall being introduced to them myself, and know I would never have spotted them but for their clear green leaf and even then they are generally in dampish darkish spots, not easy to see, until you know them.
