is a small shrub now known in Tasmania from two small near-coastal sites in the northeast where it grows in heathland and heathy woodland. Fewer than 200 mature individuals are known, all but 8 in one subpopulation. This and the small size of plants place the species at risk of loss from unforseen human activities and chance events. The main threats are frequent low intensity burns that kill post-fire recruits before they set seed and sufficiently replenish the soil seed bank, or the prolonged absence of fire due to mortality and depletion of the soil seed store. Infection with the root rot pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi
represents a possible, albeit low threat.
