Is this Adenocarpus viscosus?

Posted this on Name That Plant, but no takers. :-((

Do any of you alpine specialists have any idea?

Lots of it growing in the caldera of El Teide, on the island of Tenerife.

Totally the wrong time to be there, as everything was quite dessicated after the winter, and hadn't started spring growth.

    Hi guys
    Just a quick update.
    Been doing more research, and I am 99.9% sure of the ID.
    It appears that the 2 spp I was trying to choose between, A. viscosus and A. folilosus, are to be found at different altitudes. A, foliolosus, upto 1800m, while A. viscosus from 2000m.
    As this plant was at an altitude of approx 2200m, it would have to be A. viscosus.
