Acacia deanei subsp. deanei

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: endangered (e); listed in Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988

Diagnostic features as in key. Flowers May–Jun.(–Aug.).

NIS, VRiv. Also NSW, Qld. Known from a few small populations in the Chiltern area, in Eucalyptus sideroxylon forest.

The number of glands on the rachis between pinnae-pairs seemed variable within and between the subspecies and could not be used to distinguish the 2 taxa. Fruiting material from the Victorian plants has not been examined, but the fruits of subsp. deanei apparently have a less prominent margin than those of subsp. paucijuga and the funicle of the seed is not expanded towards the seed (Morrison & Davies 1991).
