Mirbelia oxylobioides (sandstone bushpea) is a shrub with a highly restricted distribution in Tasmania, occurring on Triassic sandstone outcrops in dry eucalypt woodland near Elderslie in the State’s Southern Midlands. The species has only been confirmed from two sites within a single subpopulation, with a total number of mature individuals estimated at about 6,500 in an area of less than 10 ha, putting the species at risk from inadvertent or chance events. Other threats to the species include invasion by woody weeds (especially gorse), inappropriate fire regimes and drought.
