It is a straggling shrub to 60 cm tall, with branchlets covered with short, fine, erect hairs. The leaves are
short, 3-7 mm long, divided into three or more narrow lobes with blunt ends and covered with short, stiff
hairs. The flowers are borne at the ends of the branches, solitary or in clusters of two or three. The flowers
have pedicels 1-2 cm long with linear, fine bracteoles. The calyx is shortly hairy and the petals are pink in
colour, or very pale pink, cream and black or white with purple outside. The keel and wings are about
equal in length.
This taxon has been confused with
tapering bracteoles, yellow flowers with the keel longer than the wings, pointed, sparsely hairy leaves and
branchlets with long, soft hairs.
Another, more common taxon similar to
calyx with long, soft hairs. See E.A.Griffin 5560.
Occurs between Moora and Coorow.
Has been recorded growing in yellow sand, and sandheath.

- Further survey is required particularly in the area between Moora and Coorow on sand heaths, in order
to determine the conservation status of the taxon.
- Further taxonomic work is required in this group.

wide. The flowering stems have leaf-like bracts, which are smaller than the leaves. The flowering section
of stem is up to 20 cm long. The flowers are in clusters of up to three on stalks to 9 mm long, each flower
stalk thread-like, to 5 mm long. The sepals are narrow, to 1.5 mm long. The flowers are blue, or pink with
a yellow throat or purplish-blue with a white throat, to 12 mm long, with five winged lobes.
The plant is covered with a viscid varnish when mature, with appressed peltate hairs.
This species is closely related to
G. caerulea and G. glareicola but differs in its peltate hairs, which are
hidden by the secretion of viscid varnish. These hairs cover the younger leaves and outside of the flowers.
There are also simple hairs on the calyx and corolla and the flower is smaller.
A specimen collected from north-east of Eneabba closely approaches this species but has little viscid
Flowering Period: November-December
Distribution and Habitat in the Moora District
Two collections from the Moora District occur over a range of 30 km north and east of Eneabba. Only one
population, occurring north-east of Eneabba has been seen recently.
This species is also known from two collections made 500 km to the south-east in the Lake King to
Ravensthorpe area in 1983 and 1986, growing in brown clayey sand with lateritic gravel in shrubland with
Malleostemon roseus and Callitris, Hakea and Verticordia species.
Has been recorded in the Moora District growing in grey sand and lateritic gravel in regenerating heath and
low heath with
V. grandis, Hakea sp. and Xanthorrhoea sp.

Grevillea integrifolia subsp. Eneabba (P.Olde 91/103)]
An upright shrub 1-1.7 m tall. The leaves are boat-shaped and flattened, obovate in shape with the upper
surface hairless, the lower surface silky-hairy. The inflorescence is a cluster of several racemes of flowers,
each raceme 8-13 cm long. The flowers are creamy-white in colour, each ca. 5 mm long. The fruits are 10-
12 mm long, 3-4 mm wide, obovate in shape, with a rough surface.

Olde and Marriott (1995).
An erect loose shrub to 1-2 m tall, with narrow leaves which are usually simple but are rarely divided from
near the base into two or three linear segments. They are 5-25 cm long, 1-3 mm wide, without hairs. The
margins are rolled over and the midvein is only evident on the lower surface, with two lateral veins evident
on either side of the midvein on the upper surface. The inflorescences are terminal, 3-9 cm long, globular
in shape. The floral bracts are broad and conspicuous on the buds, 7-14 mm long, elliptic to obovate in
shape. The flowers are hairless on the outside, pink, purplish-pink or pale mauve in colour (a white-
flowered form occurs near Miling) and they are smaller from the southern part of the species range in the
Moora District than from those in populations further north.
The pistil including ovary is glabrous, 17-23 mm long, with a transverse torus. The fruits are erect, to 15
mm long and 5 mm wide.
The collection from New Norcia has unusually short pistils, 11-12 mm, longer leaves and the perianth
appears pubescent, but Olde and Marriott (1995) state that the differences in the small conflorescence form
found in the south of the range are inconsistent and do not warrant formal infraspecific recognition.
This species was described from material collected by James Drummond. It is known from the Geraldton
District, between the Moresby Range, north of Geraldton to Mullewa, and near Morawa, a geographic
range of ca. 140 km. There are also records from a few localities further south in the Moora District, from
Mogumber and New Norcia and north-east of Moora.
Grevillea bracteosa is recorded growing in rugged, stony soil on hills and on granitic loam in heath or tall
shrubland, growing with
recorded from grey sandy loam in closed scrub, gravelly clay, gravelly sand, sand and sand over gravel.

apical point. They are silky-hairy with a dense, appressed indumentum, and are 1-3 cm long and 3-8 mm
wide. The flowers are in erect, usually terminal spikes, 3-7.5 cm long, the flowers with pedicels 2.7-4.3
mm long. The perianth limb is nodding to declined in bud, 1.3-1.4 mm long, the outside of perianth
glabrous, pale yellow in colour. The ovary is glabrous, the pollen presenter cone-shaped. The fruits are 6
mm x 4.5 mm with a rough dark brown to black surface.
Most of the earlier collections were identified as
G. integrifolia which has the perianth limb straight and
erect in bud. It has also been confused with
flowers which are sometimes hairy on the outside and which have pedicels less than 1 mm long.
Occurs from Arrino westwards and south to east of Eneabba over a geographic range of ca. 45 km. Most
known populations have been found recently.
Grows in clay, loam or sand over laterite, emergent in low heath on hill slopes, or in sandy loam and
laterite in low, open mallee woodland and scrub.

Grevillea pieronii Olde & Marriott ms]
A compact low shrub to 30-60 cm tall and 1-2 m wide with a lignotuberous habit and numerous branches
arising from the base. The upper leaves below the flower heads are much smaller than lower leaves which
are deeply divided with seven or fewer narrow primary lobes, sometimes with secondary divisions. They
are leathery with strongly recurved margins. The floral bracts are not shed before the flowers open. Each
flower head is dense and up to 6 cm long, borne conspicuously above the leaves. The flowers are creamy-
yellow in colour. The pollen presenter is short and has a slight basal collar. The fruits are 8-13 mm long,
rounded with a blunt apex.
This taxon was included in the Declared Rare and Priority Flora List for 1992 as
Olde and Marriott (1993) stated that the differences between this form and
are not sufficiently clear to warrant separate ranking at this stage and in their publication it is treated
informally as the Minyolo form of subsp.
It differs from
conspicuous inflorescences, deeply divided leaves and short pollen presenter.
Has been collected over a range of 25 km to the west of Dandaragan. Occurs in low open heath and open
low woodland, on gravelly lateritic rises and grey sand above small creeks. Associated species include
Eucalyptus todtiana, Allocasuarina humilis and Gastrolobium spinosum.

Olde and Marriott (1993, 1995).
This taxon was originally placed on the Priority Flora List as
It is a sprawling to prostrate shrub to 50 cm tall and 1 m across. The leaves have a flexuose axis with
narrow almost pinnatisect primary lobes and pinnatifid secondary lobes. The lobes are spreading or
directed backwards. The flowers are in short, erect, pedunculate inflorescences and are cream in colour.
This taxon has been separated by Olde and Marriott as the Mt Misery form of
G. synapheae subsp.
synapheae but some specimens closely approach the normal leaf type, so that no formal separation was
made until further sampling had been conducted. They also noted an affinity to
leaf rachis and spreading to backwardly directed leaf lobes, but the Mt Misery form differs in the fewer leaf
lobes and smaller fruits.
