I know that all the photos I have taken are invasive weeds and you can see by the size of them they have been there for a number of years. Over the past 20 years I have written to every environment minister about the poor management and neglect of the nature reserves. Weeds have the most detrimental effect on biodiversity I have witnessed this over the years. Nothing has improved in fact loss of species is accelerating. The Government has money to shoot kangaroos each year and then pay contractors for mowing because of lack of grazing has created a fire hazard but does nothing to mitigate invasive weeds. I hope by posting on Nature map something might happen, but I won't hold my breath.

Flora of Australia says 'Very similar to Bursaria spinosa subsp. spinosa, but subsp. lasiophylla retains a more erect multi-stemmed shrubby form and most parts of these plants are heavily tomentose with persisting appressed white hairs, particularly the undersurfaces of the leaves. Bursaria spinosa subsp. spinosa is rapidly glabrescent. Both subspecies have tiny sepals and bracts ( < 2 mm long) that are rapidly shed as a unit at petal break, and the stands generally display a range of developmental stages from very juvenile to adult forms.' and 'The two subspecies are fairly easy to distinguish as the autonym, Bursaria spinosa subsp. spinosa is replaced by Bursaria subsp. lasiophylla on heavier clay soils at higher altitudes in tablelands and lower mountain ranges in south eastern Australia. Subsp, lasiophylla may represent a clinal form of the common glabrous subspecies.' For subsp. spinosa it says 'This subspecies is fairly easily distinguished as the rapidly glabrescent leaves are slightly longer and narrower and the petals are longer than those in subsp. lasiophylla.' Other sources distinguish by the size and shape of the leaves.

Worth looking into. It would be good to see it when it's a bit more mature.
