Identified as Swainsona sericea last year but I know it is hard to identify. Do these closeups help? Pod about 8mm long.

Pod OK for Swainsona. Plantnet says (mature) pods in Swainsona sericea are 10-16 mm long. Number of leaflets and the length and width are needed for an ID to species level. The identification keys in both Plantnet and Vicflora use whether the stem hairs are attached at the end or in the middle as an important character. That can be recorded a macro photo or by looking with a hand lens and making field notes.
