(fleshy greenhood) is a terrestrial orchid endemic to Tasmania. It is known to be extant at four sites in the southern Midlands, growing in native grasslands and grassy eucalypt woodlands. The species has a linear range of less than 80 km, and the total number of mature plants is estimated to be fewer than 1,000. The species is unreserved. Sites are subject to a narrow range of threats, mainly associated with the maintenance of the species’ habitat through appropriate disturbance regimes (grazing and/or fire). Other factors such as climatic conditions and stochastic events are linked to other threatening processes through their impact on emergence, flowering and seed set.
