  • While this species can be distinguished from other Liparophyllum species by its leaves, the presence of flowers will enable confirmation of the identity and aid detection of this perennial aquatic herb. Flowering occurs from October to April.
  • In Tasmania, Liparophyllum exaltatum occurs in the north-east near St Helens, Scamander and the Ringarooma River. It grows in stationary or slow flowing water to a depth of 50 cm or in seasonally inundated areas on the margins of water bodies.

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. ​​​​​
