The only known specimen of this species was found in the Penambol Conservation Park, Australia, as described in Eyssartier and Buyck 2001. It is unknown whether this species remains at this locality as part of a wild population, so further information is required in order to confirm this. Although this species does not appear to be significantly threatened, the status of any of its wild populations is uncertain at this time. This species is therefore listed as DD until further information regarding this species distribution and potential threats arises.
Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?
The only known specimen of this species appears to have been found at Encounter Bay, Back Valley, Australia (Eyssartier and Buyck 2001), in the Penambol Conservation Park at 38 decimal degrees S and 140.9 decimal degrees E (geographic information provided by gbif, citation needed). No further information regarding this species’ distribution appears to be known.
Population and Trends
This species does not appear to be significantly threatened in its known habitat. Further research is required in order to determine whether this species exists elsewhere under threat, however until new information arises, this species’ population is thought to be stable.
Population Trend: Stable
Habitat and Ecology
The only known collection of this species described it as growing on the ground in a swamp at its known locality (Eyssartier and Buyck 2001).
This species is thought to exist within the Penambol Conservation Park, and is therefore unlikely to be significantly threatened, should any wild populations of this species remain at this locality.
Because this species is thought to exist within protected habitat, no conservation action can be recommended at this time without further research.
Further research into this species’ wider distribution, habitat preferences, and potential threats in other locations is required in order to accurately assess this species.
