  • Mature plants with flowers are required to confirm the identity and aid detection of this short lived perennial herb or undershrub, though leaves at reproductive nodes (bracts) are distinctive. Peak flowering occurs in November to December. The species may produce some flowers in autumn in suitable seasons.
  • Euphrasia amphisysepala is restricted to coastal dolerite south-east or south-west facing cliffs on the Tasman Peninsula. It tends to occur on relatively moist and shady ledges, rock crevices and on patches of bare ground extending from the base to the tops of cliffs where the vegetation is not too dense. The species may extend away from the cliff edge after fire but will retreat to the cliff faces as the vegetation thickens.

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. ​​​​​
