Do you have field notes? I agree it is Almaleea rather than Pultenaea. The photos do not have enough detail to tell which species. On the other hand, Almaleea capitata is the only species of Almaleea on the 2017 ACT Plant Census.
Do you have information on whether the leaves are warty on the lower surface or not, and whether the lower part of the cakyx tube is hairless or hairy?
