Notes: 8 trees of various sizes in a colony in the middle of open grassland with few other trees present. The trees were originally found by Ferdi Couto (Maureen Silva-Jones, pers. comm.). Specimens collected on 9 May were shown to Bob Drummond on 17 May 1992 and a careful examination was made, especially to check that were not Acacia polyacantha. Bob agreed that they were A. hereroensis. There already is a specimen from the same place in SRGH dated March 1988, collected by Rolf Hangartner. I understand that subsequently the trees were cut down. Mark Hyde, 3 August 2015.
