Acacia kingiana Maiden & Blakely

Acacia kingiana was a species of wattle that occurred in an area north east of Wagin in the Avon Wheatbelt region of south-west Western Australia. It has been declared extinct under Australia's Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, and Western Australia's Wildlife Conservation Act 1950.[1]

The species was described by Joseph Maiden and William Blakely in 1928. They described the species as a bushy shrub 2–3 metres (6 ft 7 in – 9 ft 10 in) tall, with 10-millimetre (0.39 in)-long, 2-millimetre (0.079 in)-wide phyllodes, and yellow flowers. It grew in gravelly soil.
