Threat status:Victoria: rare (r)
Mounded to almost prostrate shrub to 1.5 m high. Branchlet indumentum loosely subsericeous or tomentose. Leaves 2–4 cm long, 2–3 cm wide, 5–11-partite, most primary lobes again 2-or 3-fid; ultimate lobes triangular, 5–12 mm long, 2–3 mm wide; lower surface densely woolly-pubescent; margin shortly recurved. Conflorescences usually decurved to pendulous or occasionally erect, usually simple, 3–5 cm long, weakly secund to subcylindric; rachis with more or less appressed hairs; perianth cream, outer surface with more or less appressed hairs, inner surface glabrous; pistil 16–18.5 mm long, ovary subsessile, subvillous, style cream, turning pink to red soon after anthesis, glabrous, pollen presenter oblique to nearly erect. Fruits subsericeous with purplish markings.
EGU, HSF, SnM. Restricted to the upper catchment of the Buchan River, including Reedy Creek below Nunniong Plateau and probably downstream from its confluence with the Buchan.
McGillivray & Makinson (1993) included this as a subspecies of Grevillea willisii, to which it is very similar; he included within it a population at Mt Stradbroke of intermediate morphology; the status of this population, and of one from east of Gelantipy, needs clarification.
