Acacia papyrocarpa Benth., Fl. Austral. 2: 338 (1864)
Name Status. Accepted Name
Infra-generic Classification. Section Plurinerves
Notes. (1) Although A. papyrocarpa was recorded as occurring in Qld in Fl. Australia 11B: 108 (2001), this occurrence was based on material now described as A. philoxera Pedley (syn. Phrase Name: Acacia sp. (Boongeena Creek R.Bennett AQ378136) (B.R. Maslin, 20 Aug. 2020). (2) The N.T. occurrence of this species is based on C.A. White collections from McDonnell Ranges and Alice Springs. Although the White specimens are confirmed as Acacia papyrocarpa (M. O'Leary, pers. comm.), the N.T. provenance is highly suspect (P. Jobson, pers. comm.). That being said, A. papyrocarpa extends close to the N.T. border in S.A., it is possible, although perhaps unlikely (P. Jobson, pers. comm.), that it will in the future be recorded as occurring naturally in N.T. (B.R. Maslin, 20 Aug. 2020).
