(wrinkled dollybush) is a low shrub, found in open sedgy and/or shrubby wetlands, rarely with over-topping shrubs or trees. It is so far known in Tasmania from a fragmented population of several hundred plants near Port Sorell, and an historical collection from Cape Portland. The available information suggests that the total population in Tasmania is small and likely to occupy less than 10 hectares. Loss of habitat through subdivision and agricultural activities may explain the fragmented distribution of the species in Tasmania. The most important needs of the species are to prevent destruction and degradation of known and potential habitat by clearing, roadside maintenance, weed invasion and altered hydrology, and to promote recruitment through management of the habitat. The largest known occurrence of nearly 300 plants is on covenanted land managed for its natural values.
