Dried and pressed specimens were taken to the CSIRO herbarium where they were determined by Dave Albrecht to be Sisyrinchium rosulatum (images also provided). In discussions with him he indicated small fruits appear to be the most reliable character. The flower colour and shape that both PlantNET and Flora of Victoria use to distinguish species were considered to be not reliable.
