I know this group is under review - perhaps that is why the species is missing? To ID to species or subspecies level I would prefer a hand specimen (but protected species). However your photos are very good. Perhaps we should wait to add the species till we receive further news on this one.

I have been trying to decide if its subsp. tetraphyllum or subsp. meiostachyum before it is added to missing species? Any thoughts 'Plants'?

Baloskion tetraphyllum subsp. tetraphyllum seems to be restricted to the far southeast corner of NSW.
Not to say it could not occur further north to Bawley Point.

Based on distribution that 's the best argument. Can't say I know enough about morphology to make a call.

Hi guys, I've only ever seen B. tetraphyllus ssp tetraphyllus south of Eden so I'd say ssp meiostachyum is a pretty safe bet at Bawley Point - only a little south of the alleged southrn limit at Milton in NSW Flora. The reason you only have subsp tetraphyllum in the list (if that's the case) is just a hangover from the fact that the plant list was lifted from ALCW. I'd go ahead and change it to meiostachyum in ALBC.
