Small delicate perennial herb in Hughes Garran Woodland

It is hard to tell from your photos whether it is Glycine microphylla, in which the smaller veins forming a net are obvous, and which roots at the leaf nodes, or the more common Glycine clandestina, which does/has neither. Could you give us more information about those two points?

I am not very good at details and usually get anything I am not 100% sure about verified. However regarding the above photos. Several years ago we planted 10 purchased slender tick trefoil tube stock in a group in the woodland - these plants are just outside the area - so I assumed that they were slender tick-trefoils which are very variable.

Desmodium varians is very common in grassy woodlands and often survives in remnants such as this.
