Hemigenia glaucissima, a rare species from south-western Western Australia, is here described with associated photographic images and distribution map. The new species is restricted to mallee eucalypt woodland in the south-eastern wheatbelt region of the state. Currently, it is only known from two nearby populations that were first collected during botanical surveys for a mining project near Parker Range.
