Description

At a glance, the sparse foliage and bright yellow flowers distinguish this species from the other two local Prickly Moses species.

Key distinguishing features:
Phyllodes ± 4-angled and tapered evenly from near base to apex; pods strongly constricted between the seeds; peduncles slender, <0.3 mm diam.
Phyllodes not broadening at base (without a gland-angle), not crowded on stems (usually <5 nodes per cm); stipules usually <1 mm long, not persistent; flower heads bright yellow.

Best guess is Dawsonia polytrichoides, or possibly D. longiseta. Second opinion (preferably expert) ID required for positive ID.

White Sally Wattle Acacia floribunda

Date

July 19, 2020

Description

Pale yellow flowers are often crowded terminally and the individual spikes are relatively dense and usually set at about 45 degrees from the stem.
No gland on phyllode. Venation with no particularly obvious prominent veins but usually about three stand out if you look closely, with the middle one typically stronger and situated roughly along the mid-line to approximate a mid-vein. The network of minor veins have a strong longitudinal emphasis.

Description

Gland present on moderately long, relatively broad phyllode e.g 13.7 mm wide x 143.8 mm long.
Phyllodes with two prominent parallel veins, with one stronger than the other. Minor network of venation meandering somewhat, rather than strictly parallel to off-centre mid-vein. Yellow flowers typically arranged evenly up the stem, in opposite pairs, set at roughly right angles to the stem.
