Acacia evenulosa Maslin

Nuytsia 12(3): 348 (1999).

Acacia evenulosa is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae native to Western Australia.

The spreading shrub typically grows to a height of 0.5 to 2.0 metres (2 to 7 ft).[1] The banchlets are ribbed with persistent stipules that are 1.5 to 3 mm (0.059 to 0.118 in) in length. The phyllodes are erect with a narrowly oblong to linear shape that is straight to shallowly incurved and often biconvex. Each phyllode is 1.5 to 4 cm (0.59 to 1.57 in) in length and has a width of 2 to 3.5 mm (0.079 to 0.138 in) and narrowed at the base.[2] It produces yellow flowers from August to September.[1]

The species was first formally described by the botanist Bruce Maslin in 1999 as part of the work Acacia miscellany 16. The taxonomy of fifty-five species of Acacia, primarily Western Australian, in section Phyllodineae (Leguminosae: Mimosoideae) as published in the journal Nuytsia. The species was reclassified in 2003 as Racosperma evenulosum by Leslie Pedley and transferred back to the genus Acacia in 2006.[3]

It is endemic to an area in the Goldfields-Esperance, Wheatbelt and Great Southern regions of Western Australia where it is found on flats and undulating plains growing in sandy, clay, loamy or gravelly soils.[1]
