Acacia lineolata Benth.

Linnaea 26: 626. 1855

Acacia lineolata, commonly known as dwarf myall, is a shrub of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Plurinerves that is endemic to an area of south western Australia.


The open-branched shrub typically grows to a height of 0.5 to 2 metres (2 to 7 ft)[1] and has a dense, rounded or obconic shrub habit with glabrous or hairy branchlets. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The leathery, glabrous, evergreen, patent to ascending phyllodes have a linear to oblong-elliptic shape and are 2 to 6.5 cm (0.79 to 2.56 in) in length and 2 to 5 mm (0.079 to 0.197 in) wide and have numerous closely parallel, yellow nerves.[2] It blooms from June to September and produces yellow flowers.[1]

The species belongs to the Acacia enervia group of wattles.

There are two recognised subspecies:

Acacia lineolata subsp. lineolata
Acacia lineolata subsp. multilineata


It is native to an area in the Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance regions of Western Australia where it is commonly situated on sandplains, saline flats and low lying areas growing in rocky clay, saline loam or sandy soils.[1] The range of the shrub extends from around Yuna in the north west to around Pingrup in the south east.[2]
