Acacia pinguifolia, commonly known as the Fat-leaved wattle or Fat-leaf wattle, is endemic to South Australia, and is listed as an endangered species.[1] It is in the Plurinerves section of the Acacias.[5]

Distribution and habitat

It is found on the southern Eyre Peninsula and has a disjunct population near Finniss in the south Lofty region. It mainly grows in sandy or hard alkaline soils, in open scrub or woodland.[6]

The species was first described in 1947 by the botanist John McConnell Black, from a specimen collected on the Finniss River near Lake Alexandrina, in South Australia.[2][3] The species epithet, pinguifolia, derives from the Latin adjective, pinguis ("fat") and the compounding root, -folius ("-leaved") to give a Botanical Latin adjective which describes the plant as being "fat-leaved".[7]
