The open pendulous shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 2 metres (3 to 7 ft). It has slightly ridged densely hairy branchlets that become terete. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The evergreen phyllodes are quite crowded and have a circular to broadly elliptic or obovate shape with a length of 0.4 to 1.6 cm (0.16 to 0.63 in) and a width of 3 to 11 mm (0.12 to 0.43 in). The light gren phyllodes are sparsely hairy when young and have a subprominent midvein.
The species was first formally described by the botanists Barry Conn and Terry Tame in 1996 as part of the work A revision of the Acacia uncinata group (Fabaceae-Mimosoideae) as published in Australian Systematic Botany. It was reclassified as Racosperma clandullense in 2003 by Leslie Pedley then transferred back to genus Acacia in 2006. It is quite similar in appearance to Acacia sertiformis.
