Cerastium glomeratum, growing on bare soil
Growing in very short herbaceous vegetation on tracks (ie. compact soil, high light). It's slightly coastal here but not brackish so I've no idea whether it's S. tasmanica, S. marina, S. bocconei or S. rubra.
Based on images in NZPCN, it looks like S. rubra.
Common about the shaded fringes of the lawns.
