Little yellow flowers

Asked August 2, 2016, 6:28 AM EDT

Hi there, Just wondering what this small yellow flower is? I'm not squashing the petals in the picture, that's how the flowers grow -- with the two curved petals on top and the three jutting out from the bottom. It was a small ground level plant. Regards, Brigitte

Thank you for contacting eXtension. To help direct your question to the appropriate expert, please provide some details about the plant you would like identified. Where is it located geographically? In what type of environment is it growing (sun or shade, dry or damp, high elevation...)? Anything you may have observed could be helpful.

it is growing in Beaconsfield in Victoria, Australia. It is growing mostly at the base of other small trees, but in both sun & shade. Normal elivation. It's winter here so it was rather damp but i assume they grow in dry/hot conditions too since it gets like that in summer,

This is Goodenia ovata. Here is the page about it from the Australian Native Plant Society:
