Some information concerning miscellaneous  Acacia  species is presented. The typification of A. galpinii Burtt Davy is discussed, attention is drawn to an unusual specimen of A. giraffae Willd.
and to the seedling development of A. haematoxylon Willd., and the identity of A. inermis Marl, is discussed. The continued confusion over the identity of A. heteracantha Burch, is considered and the
misapplication of this name in the literature is traced. The location of type specimens of A. spirocarpoides Engl, and of A. maras Engl, is recorded.
