A shrub to 4 m high, flowers creamish to yellow (Walsh 1989; Harden 2000).

The species is only known to occur inland of Moruya on the South Coast of NSW (Harden 2000), in Deua NP, near Coondella Trig, c. 16 km west-south-west of Moruya. The variety is known only from a few plants at the type locality. The land system supporting the species is poorly known and further populations may exist in the area (Walsh 1989).

The following habitat information relates to the species as a whole, rather than to this particular variety. The species occurs on skeletal soils derived from rhyolite, an igneous rock, formed in this area as part of the Comerang Volcanic Series. Most sites are exposed, on or atop steeply sloping rock faces supporting shrubland or open woodland, although one collection is apparently from a more sheltered site supporting open forest (Walsh 1989; Harden 2000). The species is recorded from altitudes of 450-700 m asl. The two P. gilmourii var. cana specimens examined by Walsh (1989) were from 450 m and 480 m asl (Walsh 1989).

Associated species include similarly localised, rhyolitic-endemic species such as Prostanthera porcata, Westringia saxicola and an undescribed Leptospermum as well as other species characteristic of clifftop shrubland and woodland communities e.g. Eriostemon trachyphyllus, Platysace lanceolata, Hakea dactyloides, H. macreana, Kunzea ambigua and Eucalyptus stenostoma (Walsh 1989).

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.
