You have not included a photo of the back of the standard (upright) petal. The brown colour of this is the easiest way to differentiate Bossiaea buxifolia from Bossiaea prostrata (back of the standard petal red). The effort I made in writing the notes in the back of the purple book were to help people distinguish between these two species.

Thanks Betty. I've added another photo and it seems to be B. buxifolia with the brown standard.
