Allocasuarina thalassoscopica, Family Casuarinaceae, is a small shrub 1–2.5 metres high, with smooth bark. The articles (i.e. stem segments between whorls of teeth) are 6–13 mm long, and 0.7–0.98 mm in diameter, and the teeth are erect. Cones are cylindrical, 10–16 mm long, 9–15 mm in diameter. The species is most closely related to A. emuina and is difficult to distinguish from that species. There is considerable overlap in the measurements of these features and a lack of clearly distinguishable characters that could be used to separate the species. Flowering occurs from late May to late July.
