Grevillea rivularis

Grevillea rivularis, the Carrington Falls grevillea, is a shrub species which is endemic to New South Wales, Australia.[2]

It has a dense, spreading habit growing to 2.5 metres high [2] The leaves are bipinnatipartite with 3 to 9 primary lobes. Flowers appear between September and April (early spring to mid autumn) in its native range.[2] These have a translucent cream to purple-pink or mauve perianths that are cream at the base and pale pink or mauve toward the green-tipped styles[2]

The species was first formally described by Australian taxonomic botanists Lawrie Johnson and Donald McGillivray in 1960, their description published in Telopea.[1]

Grevillea rivularis occurs among other shrubs on moist creekside sites in the Carrington Falls area in the Central Tablelands.[2]

The species is listed under the New South Wales Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 and has a ROTAP listing as "2VCi".[3]
