Redlisted as Critically Endangered
A highly restricted species known from one small sandstone outcrop on the Riversdale Plain. Over 80% of its habitat has been lost to mining since 1980. There are only 22 plants extant. The site is not currently being mined but this remains a potential threat. It appears to be a slow growing species that escapes fire by growing on rocky outcrops and by having thick bark (generation length is estimated to be 40 years)."
