It certainly keys to Persoonia x lucida, which is what they call the hybrid in Vicflora. However the leaves are only just outside the range of length and width for P. linearis described in Plantnet. Vicflora has much tighter limits on leaf length and width for P. linearis in the key (mostly 2.5-5 cm long, 2-3 mm wide), but not in the species description.
Vicflora also states that P. linearis, presumably with leaf length and width as in the key, is always present where P. x lucida occurs. Is this so for your sighting?

Yes, P. linearis with leaf length and width as mentioned in the Vicflora are in the area.

That's about all it can be, always thought it was possibly a hybrid between P. linearis and P. levis, only know of one plant in Bournda NP.

Sounds convincing. They often co-occur, so you'd think they might hybridise more often.

  • Notes:
    I know of 3 plants like this, the other two are in the Wonboyn area. I am wondering if it might be a hybrid between P. linearis and P. levis. The leaf is 84mm long by 6.5mm wide
