  1. David Francis  Dianella revoluta now(2017) includes forms with anthers ranging from brown(not yellowish-brown) to almost black. The brown-anthered forms were for some years incorrectly separated out as D. admixta. The anthers on your specimen are an unusually light brown but I don't think yellowish-brown. The leaves in the third photo can be seen to be revolute, particularly near the bases which gives it as revoluta.

  3. David Francis  The common name "Black-anther Flax-lily" is misleading, better to call it "Revolute-leaf Flax-lily".
