I have always had trouble in determining subspecies of Hakea decurrens. It depends on measuring the coloured areas on the inside of the open nut.

Yep, and even if you have an open ripe fruit it is still pretty damn subtle. It is bizarre the way tiny little differences get given subspecies rank when glaring great big ones (like the various forms of Goodenia ovata) all get lumped as one thing. The other interesting thing about Hakea decurrens is that the Vic Flora reckons it is a resprouter after fire, and yet locally it is not. So where does that leave us? It doesn't look quite like H. sericea from up around Nowra either. Hakea benboydensis maybe?
