(shining cottonleaf) is a mat- or cushion-forming perennial daisy that colonises damp gaps and bare ground in alpine or subalpine areas. Only recognised as occurring in Tasmania in 2003, the species is not well known in the State, where it has only been confirmed from Ben Lomond in the north east. Available information suggests that the total population is likely to be small and at risk from chance events. Factors responsible for formation of gaps in vegetation are likely to be important for the survival of the species. The species may be susceptible to climate change through invasion of gaps by shrubs or poor recruitment due to drying of its habitat. A better understanding of the distribution and needs of the species is required to guide management.
