Fl. Australia 11B: 492 (2001) APNI
Threat status:Victoria: rare (r)
Spreading or erect shrub or small tree, 1–10 m high. Phyllodes usually distinctly whorled, linear-lanceolate to ovate, 1–2 cm long, 3–6 mm wide, pungent. Flowers in dense spikes, 2–3 cm long. Flowers Jul.–Dec.
GipP, OtR, WPro. Apparently restricted in Victoria to Wilsons Promontory and Sunday Island.
Plants typically have phyllodes 3–5 mm wide, but sometimes grade only 2 mm wide. Plants with somewhat intermediate phyllodes have been found in the Otway Range. However, these appear to be better placed in A. verticillata subsp. verticillata due to the absence of plants with broader phyllodes (3–5 mm wide) in this region.
The previous Flora of Victoria account referred to this taxon in a note using the illegitimate name Acacia verticillata var. latifolia Benth.
