Acacia crenulata R.S.Cowan & Maslin

Nuytsia 12(3): 418 (1999)

Acacia crenulata is a shrub or tree of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Plurinerves that is endemic to a small area of south western Australia.


The bushy shrub or tree typically grows to a height of 0.7 to 3 metres (2 to 10 ft)[1] and can have a rounded or obconic habit. It has glabrous branchlets with crenulate-resinous ribbing. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The glabrous, leathery and evergreen phyllodes have a narrowly elliptic to linear-elliptic shape with a length of 2 to 6 cm (0.79 to 2.36 in) and a width of 2 to 6 mm (0.079 to 0.236 in) with yellowish and resinous margins and a prominent central nerve with many indistinct closely parallel secondary nerves.[2] It produces yellow flowers.[1]

It is native to an area in the Goldfields-Esperance and the Wheatbelt regions of Western Australia where it is commonly situated on breakaways, among granite outcrops and on rocky rises growing in sandy or clay soils.[1] It is found in the Chiddarcooping Rock and Walyahmoning Rock areas near Bullabulling as a part of low Eucalyptus wandoo woodland communities and is often associated with other species of Acacia, Allocasuarina campestris and Melaleuca uncinata.[2]
