(smooth heath) is a slender shrub restricted to shrubby heathland, scrubland and woodland on ultramafic (serpentinite) substrates in Tasmania’s northwest, with an outlying location on non-ultramafic rocks along the Gordon River in the southwest. Its ultramafic habitat is restricted. Threats to the species include targeting of its ultramafic habitat for mineral exploration and extraction, inappropriate fire regimes, infection by the exotic soil-borne plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
, and regulated river flows.
