Grevillea angustiloba subsp. angustiloba

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: endangered (e)

Prostrate, procumbent, or erect shrub 0.3–1 m high, 2 m wide. Leaves 39–110 mm long, 19–94(–104) mm wide; deeply dissected, ovate to obovate in outline, with 3–8 primary divisions and 3–12 lobes in total; ultimate lobes linear, 7–36 mm long, 2–4 mm wide. Leaf margins almost flat to slightly recurved or sometimes revolute. Flowers Aug.-Jan.

LoM, Wim. Also SA. The subspecies is found in mallee heath and roadside scrub on soils that are composed of sand over clay or limestone.

In Victoria, the subspecies is found mainly from near Horsham and Nhill, through the Little Desert to the South Australian Border, with a single outlying collection from the Big Desert, and a historic collection from the 'Grampians'.

Although specimens of G. angustiloba subsp. angustiloba can usually be keyed, the distinction between forms of G. ilicifolia subsp. lobata with deeply dissected leaves with narrow lobes (e.g. Mt Arapiles, Dunolly) and G. angustiloba subsp. angustiloba, blurs the boundary between the two species. In some cases duplicate specimens of the same collection held at different herbaria have been determined as either one of the two taxa, on account of the difficulty in separating them using the key characters. Possibly better treated at infraspecific rank within G. ilicifolia.
