Author's notes

Just the one plant as far as I could tell, although as it is embedded in grass, it could be more. There was a single plant at this location about 18 years ago, and as it is listed as threatened Council erected a post to protect it from being driven on. After that Coastal Wattle took advantage of the protection to expand up off the adjacent sand and cover it up. I thought the Pultenaea had died as a result, but it appears it has outlasted the wattle, and now the veg on the adjacent sand has changed to Leucopogon parviflorus and Pittosporum undulatum, so for the moment the Pultenaea has less shading happening, other than by grass. Anyway, it has shown remarkable persistence. I wonder if it might have been introduced to this spot in road base, from another location on the Tathra-Bermi Road where it grows on what looks like an old quarry.
