EGU, HNF, MonT. Apparently restricted to high rocky ground in the upper catchment of Little River near Wulgulmerang.
This species was previously regarded to be a dwarf variant of A. pravissima.
Acacia nanopravissima spreads by suckering and does not seem to set fruit. It co-occurs with A. infecunda (previously regarded to be a dwarf variant of A. boormanii) and A. tabula (previously regarded to be a dwarf variant of A. buxifolia). All three species are restricted to the same location and are apparently sterile.
