Grevillea victoriae var. leptoneura Benth.

Grevillea parvula , commonly known as Genoa grevillea, is a species of the plant genus Grevillea. It is native to the states of Victoria and New South Wales in Australia.[1][2]

The taxon was first formally described in 1870 as Grevillea victoriae var. leptoneura by English botanist George Bentham in the fifth volume of Flora Australiensis. It was promoted to species status in 2000. The species is listed as "Rare in Victoria" on the Department of Sustainability and Environment's Advisory List of Rare Or Threatened Plants In Victoria. [3]

Locations where the species occurs include Wog Wog Mountain, White Rock Mountain, Mount Kaye and the upper tidal reaches of the Wallagaraugh River.[2]

The cultivar Grevillea 'Canterbury Gold' is a hybrid between a prostrate yellow form of Grevillea juniperina and this species.[4]
