The leathery, dull green to grey-green, erect to ascending phyllodes have an oblanceolate to linear-oblanceolate shape and can be straight to shallowly incurved. the phyllodes are 2 to 4.5 cm (0.79 to 1.77 in) in length and 2 to 10 mm (0.079 to 0.394 in) wide and have three to five or more subdistant longitudinal nerves per face. It blooms from August to September and produces yellow flowers.
It has a disjunct distribution from around Kununoppin in the north to Lake Grace in the south where it grows in gritty clay and loam soils as a part of Eucalyptus woodland and mallee scrub communities.
