I think I can see the characteristic joint in the leaf stalks, though when I blow up photo 1 the image becomes blurred. Also the other two records on CNM at Rendezvous Creek of Bossiaea are of prostrata rather than buxifolia. An easier character is the colour of the back of the standard (upright) petal - pinky brown to bright pink in prostrata and brown to dark red in buxifolia.

I can see leaf stalks in the photo I have... Again can send it through via email if it helps!

So can I. Whether there is an obvious joint in the leaf stalk (prostrata) or no joint (buxifolia) is the diagnostic.
