  • Epacris graniticola is best identified during its flowering period, September to late October, as flowers aid detection and enable confirmation of the identity of this generally erect multi-stemmed woody shrub. However, observations of this species have been made through most of the year.
  • Epacris graniticola is restricted to granite outcrops in northeastern Tasmania. It is usually found growing amongst clumps of moss and lichen in moist depressions and fissures on exposed rock platforms, but may also grow in seepage areas associated with granite slabs in dry scrub-forest. The elevation range of known sites is 80 to 730 m above sea level.

Permit: A permit is required under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995 to 'take' (which includes kill, injure, catch, damage, destroy and collect), keep, trade in or process any specimen or products of a listed species. Additional permits may also be required under other Acts or regulations to take, disturb or interfere with any form of wildlife or its products, (e.g. dens, nests, bones). This may also depend on the tenure of the land and other agreements relating to its management. ​​​​​
