  • Type: "portion of the type A. linearifolia was received from Kew, labelled "115 A. crassiuscula Wendl. (A. linearifolia A.Cunn.), Blue Mountains, December 84/1825, New South Wales, A. Cunningham." The locality is evidently a mistake, as we know of no such Acacia occurring on the Blue Mountains."
