    Yes, I agree with your ID. It still looks a little immature as the spikes are short.

Notes

    Growing in a very moist shady spot on a log just off the Culmaran valley track in Richmond Range National Park NSW. Coordinates aren't exact but just before the towering strangler fig along the valley floor. Really worth taking the walk to see such a diversity of plant species in this small refuge of ancient Gondwana forest.
