This member of the Burseraceae family was given this name by Townshend Stith Brandegee in 1908. It is found in Baja California, Mexico, growing in well-drained soil with some water and some sun. The stem can grow to eight centimetres or more in diameter, and will reach up from one to four meters. The flowers are white and the plant can be reproduced both by the small red seeds and by cuttings. 

The genera is named after: Joachim Burser, German/Danish botanist,1583-1639. The specific name; filicifolia is derived from the Latin words filix meaning 'fern' and folium meaning 'a leaf' referring to the similarity of the leaves of this wattle to the fronds of some species of fern.
