Yes, its usually about a centimeter from where the phyllode joins the pulvinus (stalk), there is frequently a sharp bend in the shape of the phyllode at this point.
The basal gland should be visible to the naked eye, on the outer edge of the leaf. Many species have no gland, so it may not be longifolia you are looking at.
