Gastrolobium sp   

Gastrolobium sp. whole shrub Gastrolobium sp. close Gastrolobium sp. leaves

I had thought this must be Gastrolobium microcarpum (Sandplain Poison) which is supposed to be common here. However the leaves should be more folded, point downwards at the end, slightly longer and end in mucronate tip (small spine). They do end in a small blob which may grow into a point but it's unconvincing. This shrub was growing very close to the accommodation huts in Dryandra Forest and if you have any idea what the identity of this plant is then please let me know.
