  • This small diffuse multi-branched shrub flowers from September to November but can be identified year round. The taxon is a variant of Pomaderris pilifera that appears to be adapted to particularly impoverished dry microsites and as such, searches would be expected to be more fruitful in similar microsites that occur adjacent to or within stands of Pomaderris pilifera subsp. pilifera.
  • Pomaderris pilifera subsp. talpicutica is known with certainty from two small subpopulations, in the Government Hills east of Risdon in the south of Tasmania, and close to the East Tamar Highway in the north. A third location east of Mathinna consists of a single plant in poor condition that has only been tentatively ascribed to the taxon. At East Risdon, Pomaderris pilifera subsp. talpicutica is found on the western slope of a hill within 60 to 80 m of the River Derwent and between 30 to 35 m above sea level. It occurs on Permian mudstone on very well drained skeletal soils with much broken and weathered shell debris scattered about. The taxon occurs in open shrubby woodland dominated by Eucalyptus amygdalina.

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. ​​​​​
