(swamp everlasting) is a perennial paper daisy that grows in swampy habitats such as sedgy-heathy wetlands, heathlands and woodlands. In Tasmania, many of the 20 known subpopulations have not been recorded for many decades and the species was probably once more widespread than the data indicates. Subpopulations tend to be highly localised and small and the species probably has a total population of fewer than 5,000 mature individuals and occupies less than 5 ha. This increases the risk of losses through chance events. This risk is exacerbated as the species does not appear to form a seed bank for recolonisation if plants are lost from a site. Threats include historical and continuing clearing and modification of prime habitat through agricultural practices.
