Threlkeldia diffusa, also known as Coast Bonefruit, is a perennial herb which occurs in coastal areas and saline flats in Australia. It is sometimes prostrate or may grow up to 0.4 metres in height. The green flowers occur between October and November (spring) in its native range. Superficial appearance to Austral Seablite but differs in its shorter leaves and hardened fruit. Closely related to Bonefruit (Osteocarpum acropterum) from the Mallee Region but differs in its fruit being thinly succulent rather than dry and more elongated than the subglobular shape of Bonefruit fruit.
