Author's notes

Distinguished from edible olive by the small round fruits and the underside of the leaf being yellowish, not whitish. A serious environmental weed round Sydney but not too well established in the Bega Valley yet. However, I'd say it has potential. There are a few planted here and there, and some feral ones on the Candelo Rd near Kameruka, as well as these ones at Bermagui.
