(spur velleia) is a short-lived perennial herb, known in Tasmania from the Midlands and Derwent Valley, where it grows in grassy woodlands and grasslands. While the species has been recorded at over 30 sites, the current status of most sites is uncertain. For the species to persist, fire or other disturbance that creates bare ground is needed for recruitment from soil-stored seed. The main threats to the species are grazing by stock and clearance of its habitat for agriculture or urban expansion, a threat exacerbated by the possible absence of plants or presence in low numbers between recruitment events. Past clearing has resulted in a fragmented distribution, further risking the species through increased edge effects.
