    Rubus rosifolius




    This one isnt rosifolius, some other native raspberry, possibly R. moluccanus. It seems to have a viral diesease around insect bites on the leaves.

    Another species. Very small. R. parvifolius. Fruit is sometimes sweet, sometimes tangy, sometimes insipid, depending on rain and sun.





    Rubis Fraxinifolius (Queensland Raspberry) is now called R. probus, R. fraxinifolius is the similar species from asia, but the Australian variety is now recognised as a separate species.
