Millotia muelleri (clustered bowflower) is an annual herb in the daisy family, known in Tasmania from a single site on the north coast that probably represents the southern limit of its range in Australia. The Tasmanian site occurs in skeletal soils at the top of a dolerite cliff within Allocasuarina verticillata woodland. While plant numbers are likely to fluctuate from year to year, fewer than 60 plants have been recorded in any given year in an area of less than 10 m2. This places the species at a high risk of extinction from inadvertent or chance events, particularly as the species may not emerge in unfavourable years, and makes it susceptible to even small localised changes in environmental conditions. The most pressing needs of the species are to prevent the destruction or degradation of its known and potential habitat.

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. ​​​​​
