Banksia chamaephyton, also known as the fishbone banksia, is a shrub endemic to Western Australia. It has prostrate stems, pinnatipartite leaves, and cream and brown flowers surrounded by hairy bracts. It grows in kwongan near the lower west coast and is typically 0.4m tall and 2m wide. This species was first described in 1981 and its name refers to its low-growing habit. It is classified as "Priority Four" by the Government of Western Australia and is used in horticulture as its seeds are easy to germinate.
