Racosperma pinguifolium (J.M.Black) Pedley
Distribution and habitat
It is found on the southern Eyre Peninsula and has a disjunct population near Finniss in the south Lofty region. It mainly grows in sandy or hard alkaline soils, in open scrub or woodland.
The species was first described in 1947 by the botanist John McConnell Black, from a specimen collected on the Finniss River near Lake Alexandrina, in South Australia. The species epithet, pinguifolia, derives from the Latin adjective, pinguis ("fat") and the compounding root, -folius ("-leaved") to give a Botanical Latin adjective which describes the plant as being "fat-leaved".
