3 subspecies, all in Tasmania, only A. mucronata subsp. longifolia present in Victoria, see profile of that taxon for description of Victorian plants.

Acacia mucronata subsp. longifolia is distinguished from the other 2 subspecies in having phyllodes usually more than 9 cm long (rarely less than 10 times as long as wide) and usually acute. However, specimens of this variety from Otway Range, Strathbogie State Forest and Latrobe River catchment have broad, elliptic to obovate leaves less than 9 cm long and with bluntish apices. In addition to these variants, specimens from numerous localities have long leaves which are unusually broad (more than 6 mm wide). A species deserving of further investigation.
