this does not look like a species that would occur in Canberra, is the image correctly assigned?

This resembles several specimens of A. aperta on BOLD which shows specimens from all over Eastern Australia.

Yes, agreed, system placed the new species at 'Plants, Other Shrubs' but this has now been corrected with michaelb's help. Thanks Michael.
