Phebalium glandulosum subsp. eglandulosum is a small upright shrub growing to 2 m high with pale to bright yellow flowers (Stanley & Ross 1983; Steenbeeke 1998; Wilson 1970).

This species is recorded from near Stanthorpe, Qld (Stanley & Ross 1983) and in the Torrington district, NE NSW (Harden 1991; Wilson 1970). It is conserved in Girraween NP (NSW) where less than 1000 plants occur (Briggs & Leigh 1996). No other specific localities have been documented.

The species occurs on sandy soils in heath, rocky crevices and scree, amongst granite outcrops, at no particular altitude (Harden 1991; Steenbeeke 1998).

Flowering occurs in spring (Stanley & Ross 1983; Steenbeeke 1998; Wilson 1970) and fruit are borne on the plant during spring and summer (Steenbeeke 1998).

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.
