Without seeds we cannot be sure.

Yep, figured as much. We have so many different species of Rytidosperma... at least five unknown. I have had the conversation before with Michael B about how difficult they are to ID. Would be happy for someone to come out to ID and/or take samples during the next season. :) I have collected and dried a few samples as well.

If you take some good photos of seeds against a ruler we can make a reasonable attempt at an ID. Otherwise I would be happy to take you up on your offer.

Agree with Matt, we should be able to go further with good images of the seeds. Though if you do end up heading out Matt you'll have to pick me up on the way ;).
