Acacia stigmatophylla, also known as djulurd, is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Juliflorae the is endemic to northern parts of Western Australia.


The shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 4 metres (3 to 13 ft)[1] and has smooth dark grey coloured bark. The glabrous, angular to flattened branchlets have red-brown to light brown colour and have resinous ridges. The straight, green phyllodes have a narrowly elliptic to oblanceolate shape. The phyllodes have a length of 2.5 to 7 cm (0.98 to 2.76 in) and width of 6 to 23 mm (0.24 to 0.91 in) and a small knob-like mucro at the apex and three prominent longitudinal nerves.[2] It blooms from January to October producing yellow flowers.[1] The cupular flowers widely spaced and the petals have a prominent midrib. After flowering brown woody, narrowly oblanceolate, flat, seed pods form that are basally narrowed form. The pods have a length of 3 to 7 cm (1.2 to 2.8 in) and a width of 4.5 to 8.5 mm (0.18 to 0.33 in) and open elastically from the apex. The dark brown seeds inside have a broadly oblong-elliptic shape and are 4 to 6 mm (0.16 to 0.24 in) in length.[2]

It is native to a large area in the Kimberley region of Western Australia from around Broome and east to the border with the Northern Territory where it is situated in a large variety of habitat growing in sometimes skeletal sandy soils over granite, sandstone[1] or quartzite as a part of coastal monsoon forest on the hills and ranges above savannah grassland or open Eucalyptus woodland communities.[2]
