Is this a common fringe lily (Thysanotus tuberosus)?

Hi Ross, Looks like this one got overlooked somehow. I'm going with T. juncifolius, which has smaller flowers than tuberosus and seems to be the more common species in heath. It has purple anthers, while T. tuberosus has white ones, so it clearly isn't tuberosus. T. patersonii flowers are similar to juncifolius but the plant is twining and I can see no hint of that in your photo.
