CVU, EGL, EGU, HNF, HSF, VRiv. Also Qld, NSW, ACT. Confined to mostly rocky habitats along the eastern highlands of Australia, extending southward into an area north-west of Mt Tingaringy in far East Gippsland, with a few outlying pockets further westward on and near the Strathbogie Ranges.
Usually characterized by the indented gland connected to the midrib by a fine oblique vein. Often confused with Acacia falciformis which is usually a larger plant distinguished especially by the usually golden, appressed-hairy peduncles and raceme axes and larger flowers. Also similar to A. obliquinervia and A. sporadica (see note after A. sporadica).
