The rounded shrub or tree typically grows to a height of 1 to 5 metres (3 to 16 ft). It blooms from August to December and produces yellow flowers.[1]

The species was first formally described by the botanist Bruce Maslin in 1995 as part of the work Acacia Miscellany Taxonomy of some Western Australian "Uninerves-Racemosae" species (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae: section Phyllodineae) as published in the journal Nuytsia. The species as reclassified as Racosperma anthochaerum in 2003 by Leslie Pedley but returned to the genus Acacia in 2006.[2]
