Vernacular names

Acacia acrionastes is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae that is native to parts of eastern Australia.

The shrub or tree has a spindly habit and typically grows to a height of 1.5 to 8 m (4 ft 11 in to 26 ft 3 in) and has smooth bark. It has linear phyllodes that are straight to slightly curved with a length of 6 to 17 cm (2.4 to 6.7 in) and a width of 2 to 4 mm (0.079 to 0.157 in). It blooms between July and August and produces inflorescences with creamy yellow flowers.[1]

The species was first formally described by the botanist Leslie Pedley in 1990 in the article Acacia acrionastes (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae), a new species from south-eastern Queensland as published in the journal Austrobaileya. The only synonym is Racosperma acrionastes. It is also often confused with Acacia adunca[2] to which it is closely related.[1]

It is found in north western New South Wales where it is considered rare and Queensland where it is more common. It is often a part of dry sclerophyll forest communities and grows in loamy clay soils over volcanic substrate.[1]
