Author's notes

I'm pretty sure this is Pom discolor. It has the recurved leaf margin and sparse stellate and simple hairs on the fruits that the Flora says it should. The main thing it could be confused with is Pom bodalla, with the split in the key being white vs silvery leaf reverse (and I've never got that!), as they both have fine white stellate hairs underneath with sparse long simple hairs on the midrib. However, Pom bodalla should have 4-6 pairs of secondary veins & my thing clearly has at least 7 on one of the leaves. The thing of Steve's you thought might be discolor Betty, is a lot hairier than this. This spot near Bermi is the only place I have seen it.

Is this the one you are sending up to Sydney? Betty

I have pressed some I'd collected from Widgeram Rd in Bournda, which is the same as what Steve put up, plus I've pressed this one from Bermi as well, so I'll send them both off eventually.
