Description
Acacia tingoorensis is a tree with stout, angular branchlets covered in short, dense, spreading hairs. Phyllodes (enlarged part of the leaf stalk taking the form of a leaf) are narrowly elliptic, straight or sickle-shaped and 9-19cm long by 13-44mm wide. The phyllodes are usually largest on juvenile plants and hairy near the base. Golden flowers are produced on spike-like heads 5-7cm long.
A. tingoorensis is one of a taxonomically 'difficult' group of species and until recently was treated as a subspecies of A. longispicata, distinguished by its dense erect velvety (not appressed) hairs on the branchlets, leaf stalk base and stalk of the spikes. Pods and seeds may provide additional differences but pods of A. tingoorensis are unknown. (Maslin et al. 2001; World Wide Wattle 2006)
