Relatively locally common in this area. A first time find of this species for me. Its prickly nature lives up to its name.

At this site there were literally 100's of small hummocks (30-50cm across) made up from this species and wind blown sand. I have pondered over this species and keyed it out to the best of my abilities as the suggestion. I would be happy to be corrected. The lunate node buttresses, hairy young branchlets, white fruit, and general location are my assumptions.
