Author's notes

More detail to confirm the subspecies! Hairs on central upper leaf surface c. 0.1 mm long, with usually 3–5 arms; central vein of leaves touching revolute margins = subsp. stricta Hairs on central upper leaf surface c. 0.3 mm long, with (1) 2 or 3 arms; central vein of leaves usually not touching revolute margins = subsp. furcatula. It looks more like the spp.stricta?

This is a difficult group and the existing taxonomy needs work I am convinced.
The plant you have may well be the threatened Hibbertia stricta furcatula; I note the hairs on the leaves in your photo. I have confirmed this taxon at this location in the last.
Check the key with a specimen in hand.

Some macro shots - does this help?.

One is looking for prominent stellate hairs, which you will need a hand lens at least to see.
I am not totally convinced about the uniqueness of this subspecies, as there appears to be much variation.
