Taxonomic notes: The circumscription of the subspecies asperula and obliqua is somewhat difficult because of the existence of intermediates. Variation in the phyllodes is great, ranging from subulate to flat or obliquely obovate shapes. The boundary between these subspecies is somewhat arbitrary and the descriptions are based on the extreme forms.
