(northern pinkbells) is a slender shrub that in Tasmania has been recorded from mostly near-coastal sites from Rocky Cape to the Tomahawk/Boobyalla area, where it grows in heathland or heathy woodland. The data suggest that the species occurs in small localised patches, placing them at risk from chance events. Small occurrences may not attract pollinator movement from plant to plant to effect the cross-pollination likely to be necessary for seed production leading to local extinctions. The risk of inadvertent losses is exacerbated as the species may only occur in small numbers or become restricted to the soil seed store in between fire events. Threats to the species include clearance and fragmentation of its habitat, infection by the exotic plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
, and inappropriate fire regimes. Fire and disease management would benefit known occurrences.
