Author's notes

I think it is this species from the gland on the margin of the leaf. [Location is approximate, I did not have a GPS with me, so based on memory]

Acacia falciformis also has a marginal gland with a vein leading towards the midvein. However, its leaves have an obtuse tip, and the stalks of the individual flower heads have golden hairs pressed tightly to the stalk.

Definitely not Acacia penninervis, as it does not have a mucro on the leaf tips, and there doesn't appear to be an oblique vein to the gland from the pulvinus. A. rubida has the mucro and can also have a second gland along the leaf margin.
