I was going to put Caesalpinia gilliesii, but when I looked it up in our database this is what came up,with Caesalpinia gilliesii as a synonym. Most of what I find online show Erythrostemon gilliesii as the synonym.

It would appear our database needs corrected.

Both the Catalogue of Life and The Plant List show Caesalpinia as the correct genus, with Erythrostemon gilliesii as a synonym. Erythrostemon gilliesii is not listed as an accepted name, only as a synonym of Caesalpinia gilliesii.

@zuzu could you look at this?
