Acacia deuteroneura is a shrub growing to about 3 m high (Pedley 1979; Orchard & Wilson 2001).

This species is known only from the type locality about 60 km north-north-east of Tambo on the road to Alpha in central western Qld (Pedley 1979; BRI undated; Orchard and Wilson 2001). There are large tracts of similar but inaccessible country north and south-east of the known locality and that the species may prove to be more widely distributed than it appears (Pedley 1979). However, in 2001, no other occurrences had been recorded (Orchard and Wilson 2001).

Fewer than 100 individuals were observed at the site in 1973 (L. Pedley 2001, pers. comm.).

This species may be confused with A. decora and A. polifolia which grow in the same area. In contrast to A. decora, both the other two species have phyllodes with only one nerve and hairy racemes (Pedley 1979; Orchard & Wilson 2001).

This species grows in skeletal soil on knoll of weathered sandstone with Eucalyptus bakeri (Pedley 1979).

Flowers have been recorded in Aug.; fruits in Nov. (BRI undated).

The following table lists known and perceived threats to this species. Threats are based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) threat classification version 1.1.
