ALA reference

Like the F. schottiana, the seedpods of the F. australis are in five segments and covered in coarse prickles. However, unlike F. schottiana, its pods normally open symmetrically and retain that shape when they fall. The pods also carry about twenty to thirty flat papery seeds. Saplings are common in the Reserve and there is a large mature tree in the gully on the eastern boundary. (January 2009)
