Spreading to decumbent shrubs with usually glabrous branches to 0.5 m long, lateral branches usually fascicled. Vestiture of forward-directed straight or crisped simple hairs. Leaves linear, 3–21.4 mm long, 0.3–0.7 mm wide, glabrous, puberulous or rarely tomentose; apex obtuse, erect to somewhat incurved; margins often incurved; lower surface usually strongly convex with central vein not showing. Flowers sessile, terminal, mainly on short shoots, with 2 triangular bracts 1.2–2.6 mm long; sepals 3.2–6.5 mm long, unequal, glabrous or rarely puberulous towards the apex; petals obovate, 3.4–12.6 mm long, bright yellow; stamens in groups around the ovary; filaments free; anthers 1–1.4 mm long; carpels 3, glabrous.

The anthers, which are only 0.5–0.7 mm long in Hibbertia fasciculata var. fasciculata of New South Wales, are always much longer in Hibbertia fasciculata var. prostrata, a generally more vigorous plant with usually larger floral parts (see also Hoogland 1983, p. 3).
