Probably Solanum stelligerum. Check others in this group in the key to be sure.

There are a lot of species not yet included in the Plantnet key. It might be one of those.

This is a late draft. The final could be a bit different.

At the Milton R Landcare Nursery we've pondered over this local Solanum many times. Seems to have paler and duller leaf than shown in references available.
