All referenced *Lepidosperma* species once and–or still occurring in the SE. Melb. Sand-stone-belt ecological region.

Listing all of the referenced Lepidosperma species once and–or still occurring in this region – with source ref's::

Lepidosperma curtisiae K.L.Wilson & D.I.Morris – was named L lineare R.Br. in Sutton (1912) and derived Willis (1989)

Lepidosperma filiforme Labill. – Sutton (1912) and derived Willis (1989)

Lepidosperma gladiatum Labill. – Sutton (1911) and derived Willis (1989)

Lepidosperma laterale R.Br. – var. angustum Benth. seems was included in the early 1900s description of then named L. lineare R.Br. in Sutton (1912)

Lepidosperma laeve R.Br. – was locally known as Lepidosperma congestum R.Br.

Lepidosperma longitudinale Labill. – Sutton (1911, 1912 as L. exaltatum R.Br.) and derived Willis (1989)

Lepidosperma semiteres F.Muell. ex Boeckeler – in the early 1900s seems was included within the description of L. filiforme Labill. included in Sutton (1912) and occurs locally in Bayside, thus in Willis (1989)

Lepidosperma sieberi Kunth – formerly locally called L. concavum R.Br. now known as restricted to central NSW, in Sutton (1912) and derived Willis (1989)

I hope that information eventually helps clarify, once you absorb it all.

*Ficus hispida* cf. *Ficus congesta*

Ficus hispida botanical key features, including:

• Opposite (attached) leaves, and
leaves' outline' shapes, bases' shapes and apices' shapes, and
forms including papery lamina
(not thick as per Ficus congesta), and
canopy new growth leaves pale green
– (not red per Ficus congesta).

• Figs depressed globose (shape)
– (not pyriform to discoid per Ficus congesta).

• Figs densely brown-pubescent (or velvety white hairs, fide Cooper & Cooper 2004: 324)
– (Figs here: not pyriform to discoid ..., not ribbed, not glabrous nor hispid; nor ostiole as depressed, as per the Ficus congesta figs' form)

• Fruits shapes and surfaces appearances match this species
– (not Ficus congesta).

Etcetera ...
.

*Ficus variegata* cf. *Ficus racemosa*

Re: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=773248038247826&set=a.440980548141245&type=3&comment_id=989557675991793

Here the white spots on these still ripening fruits coloured pale reddish and green,
and attached on to "inflorescence stems short, knobby, outward or upward pointing"
and these here "peduncles 30–50 mm long"
Ref': Coopers (2004) page 328,
confirm that this tree identifies to:
Ficus variegata

To doubly prove confirmation you may check the form of the leaves with,
a zoom lens into the canopy,
and any on the ground from the canopy above.

Ficus variegata has:
"Leaf blades rather large, about 14-21 x 9-13 cm.
...
Stipules smooth. "
Ref': RFK ed. 8 : https://apps.lucidcentral.org/rainforest/text/entities/ficus_variegata.htm

And "leaves ...glabrous [hairless]; petioles 50–140 mm long; stipules green or pink, 10–20 mm long"
Ref': Coopers (2004) page 328.
.

(Not Ficus racemosa – having yellow–orange–bright red ripe fruits,
after ripening from all over green unripe fruits without white spots,
attached onto inflorescence stems longer with longer branches and that often hang downwards with the figs on them,
"Leaves ... 50–200 x 30–90 mm ...; petioles 20–70 mm long; stipules 5–20 mm long, minutely hairy. "
their much shorter "peduncles 5–12 mm long"
Ref': Coopers (2004) page: 326
and
"Leaf blades about 6-20 x 4-9 cm ".
Ref': RFK ed.8 : https://apps.lucidcentral.org/rainforest/text/entities/ficus_racemosa.htm

And "Ultimate branchlets, stipules or petioles hairy ."
Ref': https://keybase.rbg.vic.gov.au/keys/show/13193

Hibbertia prostrata cf. Hibbertia fasciculata, s.l, s.s. and var. prostrata – In the context of Vic. .– for what iNat 'taxonomy' is worth.

English language paraphrases from the original species descriptions publications – of the differences, in their authors' terms :

Hibbertia fasciculata R.Br. ex DC. (1818)
• mature leaves glabrous,
• stems erect and branching, hairy,
• styles subdiverging
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/41046603
.

Hibbertia prostrata Hook. (1834)
• mature leaves hairy,
• stems decumbent–procumbent, hairy,
• single style (apparently – was thought and thought a single carpel, – at the time of description).
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/796127
.
Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata (Hook.) Hook.f. (1860)
https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/page/28465113
.

In this context of Vic. .– for what iNat 'taxonomy' is worth.

I'm not surprised people have confusion about this, both professional botanists and citizen scientists into plants (amateurs).

Different concepts of the taxa: Hibbertia fasciculata and Hibbertia prostrata,
here especially Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata, and other infra-specific taxa, are used by each of the:
• Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) – Australian Plant Name Census (APC).
• Flora of Vic. online VicFlora
• Tasmanian herbarium
• Flora of NSW
• iNaturalist volunteer 'curated' 'taxonomy'
• POWO
• etcetera .

References:

• Flora of Vic. online VicFlora:
Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata page, quotation: "

The anthers are longer, flowers larger and habit more robust than in the type variety, Hibbertia fasciculata var. fasciculata, which is restricted to New South Wales. Despite the varietal epithet ('prostrata'), the plant is rarely, if ever, truly prostrate in Victoria.

" .

.

• Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) and Australian Plant Name Census (APC):
quotation: "

APC Comment: Treated as Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata in Vic, and as Hibbertia prostrata in Tas.
"

.

VicFlora conferred with iNat, spelling it out about the taxa concepts:

Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata in the sense of VicFlora (taxon concept)
has equivalence to Hibbertia prostrata in the sense of iNat's species 'taxon concept'.

Hibbertia fasciculata var. fasciculata in the sense of VicFlora (taxon concept – and only occurs in NSW and Qld)
has equivalence to Hibbertia fasciculata in the sense of iNat's species 'taxon concept', and only occurs in NSW and Qld.

Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata has no equivalence to Hibbertia fasciculata var. fasciculata (in any accurate botanical information).

• The taxon concept of Hibbertia prostrata has no equivalence to Hibbertia fasciculata types' specimens' based narrow sense taxon concept (in any accurate botanical information).

Hibbertia fasciculata types' specimens' based narrow sense taxon concept
differs from Hibbertia fasciculata types' specimens' based broad sense taxon concept.

Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata and Hibbertia prostrata mutually equivalent in types' specimens' based taxon concept,
do not have identity equivalence to Hibbertia fasciculata types' specimens' based broad sense taxon concept and again saying,
also do not have equivalence to Hibbertia fasciculata types' specimens' based narrow sense taxon concept.
