Counted 10 plants in marshy ground bordering a rainwater runoff just about the rocks adjacent to the ocean. The occurence of this species here is known to locals. Threats include aliens and trampling of those plants right next to the footpath, the stream gets clogged with rubbish in stormy weather. Endangered.

Redlisted as Endangered. All three subspecies are EN.

Only one plant was seen - although there could have been more, but definitely not an abundance. This population would be under threat due to constant direct and indirect impacts - alien invasive plants and human activities.

@magrietb, @linkie, @chris_whitehouse
Please have a look. I'm pretty sure of the ID, not sure of the subspecies

Argyrolobium splendens


only known locality for this long lost species, which seems to flower only after fire; I've been waiting patiently for the area to burn since I rediscovered it some 7yrs ago, and it finally burned in Jan 2015. Sadly still only in bud, but I was able to record at least 500 plants, but nearly all severely threatened by Hakea (sericea and drupacea). Young and old leaves very different in texture and colour. Resprouter. Sandy loams, extending right down to river some 100m south of this point.

Fynbos doesn't come more spectacular than this, in terms of species, diversity and location! really is one of the "crown jewels" of the realm.
Pop size then was estimated at about 100 adult plts, plus juveniles, no apparent threats. Has subsequently burned.
Very local endemic
