Significant sighting

7 Oct 2018

Protected species used in cut flower industry. Population of about 200 plants at southern limit. Old records indicate previously south to Conjola. Currently unprotected on crown land. Located in hind dunal low heath with adjacent ephemeral dunal swamp. Rare on this part of NSW coast.

Author's notes

Old records indicate Eriostemon australasius, a protected species, once occurred as far south as Conjola. This reasonably large population extends the range of the beautiful Pink Wax Flower.
