Found in dry sclerophyll forest dominated by Scribbly Gum and Red Stringy, within 500 m of a NSW BioNet record for the species. Plant was approx 2m tall. Looked different to the surrounding D. serecia

Just wondering if anyone has had a chance to look at this sighting? Or would it be best to get a sample and get it identified at the herbarium?

Sam, I think you are right and this D.glaucula, the infloresence is single flowered and glabrous, the stem is glabrous also. That eliminates most of other possibilites, it is certianly not D.sericea. A herbarium specimen may be usefull, but I reckon your ID is good, I'll just check with @MichaelMulvaney before confirming this.

Yes significant find Sam sorry for not IDing it sooner
