Vernacular names

Acacia camptoclada is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae endemic to arid parts of Western Australia.

The low spreading to erect shrub typically grows to a height of 0.2 to 1.0 metre (1 to 3 ft).[1] It has slightly sticky and polished branchlets with easily detached stipules. The crowded, ascending to erect glaucous green phyllodes have an asymmetrical oblanceolate to narrowly oblong shape.[2] It blooms from August to October and produces yellow flowers.[1] The inflorescences occur in groups of two to five and have showy spherical heads containing 15 to 21 golden flowers. The seed pods that form after flowering are coiled with a width of 4 to 5 mm (0.16 to 0.20 in) and contain ovate to elliptic shaped shiny black seeds with a length of around 3 mm (0.12 in).[2]

The shrub belongs to the Acacia prainii group and is closely related to Acacia dorsenna and Acacia prainii.[2]

It is native to an area in the eastern Wheatbelt and Goldfields-Esperance regions of Western Australia where it is found in low-lying areas, on sandplains and dunes growing in sandy or clay soils.[1] The range extends from Newdegate in the west to around Balladonia in the east and is often part of mallee or Eucalyptus woodland communities.[2]
