Grevillea stenomera (Lace Net Grevillea) is a shrub in the family Proteaceae. It is endemic to Western Australia, occurring between Kalbarri and Tamala.[2]

It is a silvery or blue-grey srub which usually grows up to 2 metres in height and has a peak flowering period between August and October (late winter to mid spring) in its native range.[3] The perianths are pale pink, orange-pink or reddish pink with a greenish-yellow limb and greenish-pink styles with green tips.[2] The deeply divided leaves are usually 4 to 12.5 cm long.[2]

The species was first formally described by botanist Ferdinand von Mueller in 1864.[1][2].

The Grevillea cultivar sold by plant nurseries as "Grevillea stenomera prostrate red" is thought to be a hybrid of Grevillea pinaster.[4]
