Acacia nanopravissima Molyneux (ms)
Erect shrub 0.5–0.9 (–1.2) m high. Branchlets glabrous. Phyllodes crowded, markedly inequilateral, generally obdeltate with adaxial margin conspicuously rounded with the proximal edge parallel to branchlet, 4–8 mm long, 3–6 (–8) mm wide, mucronulate, green, glabrous or with scattered hairs on margin below the gland, imperfectly 2-nerved; gland rather prominent, 2–3 mm above pulvinus, similar in form to A. kettlewelliae . Inflorescences racemose, raceme axes 12–27 mm long (exceeding phyllodes); peduncles 2.5–3.5 mm long, glabrous; heads globular, golden, 7–9-flowered. Flowers 5-merous; sepals united. Pods and seeds not seen.
Occurs at Splitters Ck, S of Wulgulmerang, north-eastern Vic. Grows in dry open forest on shallow soils derived from sediments. Acacia infecunda and A. tabula occur in this same area (in Fl. Austral . these species were treated as dwarf variants of A. boormanii and A. buxifolia subsp. buxifolia respectively).
Plants of A. nanopravissima are dwarf shrubs mostly not above 0.9 m tall; they spread by suckering and do not seem to set fruit. In Fl. Australia this species was treated as a dwarf variant of A. pravissima which, apart from its taller stature, differs most obviously from A. nanopravissima , in having larger phyllodes (mostly 7–12 x 5–14 mm).
