Grevillea parviflora R.Br., Trans. Linn. Soc. London 10: 171 (1810)

T: between Prospect and Nepean R., N.S.W., s.d. , R.Brown Iter Austral. 3337 ; lecto: BM, fide D.J.McGillivray & R.O.Makinson, Grevillea 426 (1993); isolecto: NSW.

Grevillea linearifolia 'form d, narrower-leaved Sydney form', of D.J.McGillivray & R.O.Makinson, Grevillea 343–344 (1993). 

Low spreading dense to erect open shrub 0.3–1 (–2) m tall. Branchlets angular and ridged, subsericeous between ridges, secund or not. Leaves linear to broadly so or very slightly oblanceolate, straight, pliable, 1.5–3.5 (–5) cm long, 0.8–1.0 (–1.3) mm wide; upper surface smooth to punctate, with midvein and intramarginal veins prominent and smooth to faintly granular; margins once or twice (vertically) refracted about intramarginal veins; lower surface exposed and subsericeous or sometimes enclosed except for midvein and then 2-grooved. Conflorescence terminal, erect, sessile to subsessile, mostly exceeded by adjacent leaves, broadly secund or subsecund (sometimes obscurely so), 4–14-flowered. Flowers acroscopic. Perianth subsericeous outside, bearded inside. Pistil 4.5–6.5 (–7.5) mm long; style incurved, usually hooked in apical 2 mm, with minute hairs and papillae in apical 0.5 mm; pollen-presenter oblique. Follicle narrowly ellipsoidal, 8–10 mm long, faintly warty. 

Endemic to N.S.W. Very similar to G. gariwerdensis ; see under that species for differences.
