Acacia siculiformis (dagger wattle) is a shrub which in Tasmania occurs near watercourses and in dry, rocky situations within sclerophyll forest. It mostly occurs in a band from the centre of the State to the East Coast but unvouchered records from the north east require verification. About 30 subpopulations have been recorded though fewer than 20 are supported by herbarium specimens. Available data suggests that subpopulations are small, with the total number of plants likely to be considerably fewer than 5,000 with an area of occupancy less than 5 ha, putting the species at risk from inadvertent or chance events. Other threats include dam construction, and while forestry operations may result in minor losses, the associated disturbance may trigger recruitment from soil-stored seed. The species would benefit from management of cumulative losses, and disturbance that allows recruitment leading to supplementation of the soil seed store.
