Adult leaves light- to mid-green, sublinear to narrowly elliptic, 8–18 mm long, 1–2.5 (-3.5) mm wide; upper surface convex, with venation often obscure with only the midvein evident and scarcely prominent; margins smoothly recurved to revolute; lower surface usually partially exposed, densely subsericeous; juvenile leaves shorter (1/3 to 1/2 length), proportionately wider, and flatter than adult leaves.
Flower colour: perianth dull pale yellow to apricot-orange (rarely red), with gold or brownish hairs especially on limb; style dull yellow (rarely red) with greenish style-end. Perianth densely to openly subsericeous with biramous hairs, and a few to many minute erect simple multicellular hairs scattered through. Pistil 20–25 mm long.
Flowering: Flowers mostly August–September, sporadically in other months.
Distribution and occurrence: Occurs in the N.S.W. Southern Tablelands in the area between Braidwood and Nerriga, with isolated populations in the Windellama area, and (one doubtful record) Tianjara Falls. All populations are within the Shoalhaven R. catchment.
