Acacia centrinervia Maiden & Blakely




Very closely related to A. lineata, differing primarily in the following ways. Phyllode midrib central. Peduncles puberulous. Pods and seeds not seen.


This taxon was originally described as A. lineata Group 1 by J.H.Maiden, J. & Proc. Roy. Soc. New South Wales 49: 497 (1916), but a decade later formally described as A. centrinervia. It was noted by B.R.Maslin, Fl. Australia 11A: 591 (2001) as a variant under A. lineata of which it may indeed represent an aberrant form. Except for the type from Parkes, N.S.W., the only other presumably naturally occurring material seen of it is from near Herries Ra., near Inglewood, Qld, collected in Oct. 1922 (C.J.Smith 2, BRI, NSW). ‘Typical’ A. lineata occurs at both Parkes and Inglewood. Although A. centrinervia is provisionally recognized here its taxonomic status should be reassessed in the light of a comprehensive review of A. lineata.
