Tricky one. Could be Hakea dactyloides or laevipes, with the only real difference between them being that dactyloides is killed by fire and laevipes resprouts. So if the plant is multi-stemmed and looks like it could have resprouted it's definitely laevipes, but if there has been no recent fire, then it's pretty much impossible to tell them apart (or at least I haven't found a reliable way yet).

No signs of recent fire, I don't think there has been a fire in the area that this plant is growing for quite some time.

Could this one be Hakea sp.

Or you could investigate a bit further in the vicinity and see if you can work out if plants are single or multi-stemmed and get back to me. Hakea sp is a bit of a cop-out.

Fair enough I know there is at least one other plant nearby will check next time I am there.

I have added another photograph of the base of a plant, based on that image I would imagine it is H. laevipes

I'm persuaded.
