Well this is my first post in the nexus. I guess I should begin by saying Hi everyone I'm Undernose & my avatar is to damn big, Gotta fix that. I have had a few "failed" extractions & am hoping there are some inspired & intelligent people here that can help me in my quest for the spice.Twisted Evil Went for a walk today and found some specimens that look a lot like Acacia Obtusifolia. There were a few variants or different species. Can anyone give me a positive ID. I have added a poll so please vote if you feel you know.

Well.. I could just vote, but that wouldn't help you as I have never seen an Acacia tree. I'm in Europe and I don't think we have those here.

Welcome to the community Smile I sent you a PM, not sure if you saw it. I don't know if they are A.Obtus, as I said in the PM, they all look like A.Obtus to me, but I was wondering where you found them (like what state) I've been looking for some myself (so I can get some nice photos).

Its really hard to tell. Personally i knew that obtusifolia was in an area, and simply tried little extractions on the various likely acacias there. Now its fairly easily recognisable by the shape of the bush, whereas the leaves are all pretty similar Razz d is the only possibility really, but i remember the leaves being a bit less rounded
