(small sickle greenhood) is a terrestrial orchid that in Tasmania is known from just 10 localities on the northwest coast, occurring in near-coastal swamp forest and scrub. While population data is limited it suggests that the total population in Tasmania is small, with fewer than 1,000 mature plants, and likely to occupy less than 5 ha. This makes the species susceptible to inadvertent or chance events. Loss of habitat through historical clearing may explain the apparent fragmented distribution of the species in Tasmania. While a better understanding of the distribution and needs of the species is required to guide management, the most important known need of the species is to prevent destruction and degradation of known and potential habitat.
