(bordered heath) is a shrub occurring in a small part of the catchment of the Apsley and Swan Rivers west of Bicheno in Tasmania. It occurs on damp soils derived from Jurassic dolerite at the margins of marshes where sedgey woodlands grade into heathy forests. The total number of mature individuals is estimated at about 70,000 and the species has a restricted distribution with a linear range of just 5 km putting it at risk from inadvertent, chance or localised events. The main threats to the species are infection by the exotic soil-borne plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
, and inappropriate fire regimes and disturbance.
