Chorizandra enodis (black bristlesedge) is a perennial sedge which in Tasmania is restricted to the George Town/Low Head area in the north of the State. It forms locally dense stands in low-lying swampy ground, including in remnant stands of Melaleuca ericifolia (coast paperbark) where it is most abundant on the fringes and in clearings, and slashed road-side verges and road-side drains. The species has a linear range of less than 8 km, and occupies an area of less than 1 ha, making it susceptible to chance events. Chorizandra enodis is unreserved, being restricted to private land used mainly for agricultural purposes, and road verges managed by the local council. It is known to persist under quite intensive land management practices, but is at risk from clearing for residential and industrial development and road improvements, intensification of agricultural activities including improving drainage and intensive stock grazing, frequent cleaning or deep scraping of roadside drains and competition from weeds.
