Solanum amblymerum (syn. S. elegans)
I think Spiny Kangaroo Apple is such a cool name. Such a pretty flower too, and apparently the fruit do look like tiny green apples, although I failed to notice any with this spotting. It's a very prickly small shrub that can grow to a max. height of about 1.5 metres. Spines are on stems and both top and underside of leaves. Leaves are long and lobeless, mostly smooth and dark green on top with hairy paler-coloured undersides.
Understory plant in sclerophyll forests on hills or slopes, sandy soils. Mostly granite soils in this region. Native to NSW and QLD.
