taxonomic synonym: Acacia boormanii var. Mount Typo (F.E.Bienvenu 11) Vic. Herbarium [n/a]
  • APC Dist.: Vic
  • Etymology: "The epithet derives from the latin gibbus - a hump, alluding to the prominently raised profile of Mt Typo, but also making reference to N.A.F.(Alan) Gibb, a local naturalist and Acacia expert who first made collections of the subspecies in 1976. It is here modified to the feminine to agree with the gender of the genus and is treated as a substantive."
