Most abundant Hibbertia flowering. Third image shows a sample for underside of leaves, but a zoom-in required.

Hibbertia riparia is more common. The way to tell them apart is from the back of the leaf. In H. riparia, the middle part between the rolled edges is above, to at the level of, the rolled edges. In H. calycina, it is definitely below the level of the rolled edges.

Flowering shoots collected 9 Jan 2018 from half a dozen plants and examined under binocular microscope; simple hairs present on calyx.

Whoops - date should have been 9 Jan 2019.

I thought simple hairs on calyx made it stricta.

Other way around (H. calycina with simple hairs; H stricta without simple hairs).

Nice to have an initial gut feeling confirmed by exemplary first class field work and research.
