Shepherd's Cress (Teesdalia musicalise)?

Observed: 16th June 2013 By: s.l.garlicks.l.garlick’s reputation in Plants

Low growing plant with pinnate leaves arranged in a rosette at the base of the plant. The stem of the plant was slightly hairy, which doesn't match the description for Shepherd's Cress on my plant ID guide. There are many very tiny flowers at the top if the stem, white petals and yellow stamen.

Thank you for the ID. I

Thank you for the ID. I didn't have my wild flower key book on me at the time and was relying on another book I use for comparing specimens to the pictures as the pictures are better (but not solely to be relies upon). It is interesting how much the leaves vary on the specimen I photographed compared to another I correctly ID-ed close by.
