Hibbertia cuneiformis, commonly known as cut-leaf hibbertia, is a shrub species that is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. It grows to between 1 and 2 metres tall and has yellow flowers which appear from January to March and June to November in the species native range.[1]

The species, initially named as Candollea cuneiformis, was first formally described in 1806 by French naturalist Jacques Labillardière in Novae Hollandiae Plantarum Specimen. It was subsequently placed in the genus Hibbertia by English botanist James Edward Smith in 1811.[2]
