D. revoluta flowers have dark brown to black anthers. The anthers of other species of Dianella have yellow anthers. I am fairly sure the leaf sheaths at the base of the leaves in your photo are open right diwn to the bottom. Could you add a closeup showing whether a leaf base is open or the two sides of a leaf base are pressed together lengthwise?

Betty, I took another photo for you to have a look more closely at the leaves at the base.
