I need some help to identify this acacia. The phyllodes are about 10cm long and multi-veined though only one shows clearly in the photo. The flower spikes have about 45 flowers which are widely spaced. An earlier photo is in the 'unidentified' section.

This looks a bit like Acacia floribunda? It has that pale yellow colour and long thin leaves, with one main vein but also numerous fainter ones. Did it have a visible marginl gland?

A site visit on 23 Sep 2017 confirmed Acacia floribunda. Many small specimens were noted over a wide area, with the obvious sources being large trees in nearby gardens and from a laneway leading from Kaepel Place onto the reserve.

Thanks Geoff - seems it is a weed worry as with most non-local wattles
