(apsley heath) is a shrub in Tasmania, occurring in dry sclerophyll forest on Jurassic dolerite on Tasmania’s central east coast. The total number of mature individuals is estimated at more than 500,000, though the species has a restricted distribution, with linear range of only about 11 km, putting it at risk from localised events. Threats include infection by the exotic soil-borne plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
, inappropriate fire regimes, land clearance, habitat fragmentation and modification, and weed invasion.
