(bearded heath) is a shrub, occurring exclusively on Devonian granite in open heath and heathy woodland/forest on the Freycinet Peninsula and Schouten Island in Tasmania. The total number of mature individuals is estimated at about 100,000 and the species has a restricted distribution with a linear range of only 29 km, putting the species at risk from localised events. While the species is wholly reserved, with most occurrences in Freycinet National Park, threats include infection by the exotic soil-borne plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
and inappropriate fire regimes.
