Banksia pseudoplumosa was declared to be Rare Flora under the Western Australian Wildlife Conservation Act 1950 in 2003 and is currently ranked as Endangered (EN) in WA due to the small number of populations and a continuing decline in area of occupancy. The species is also listed under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 as Endangered. The main threats to the species are disease (Phytophthora), altered fire regimes, roadworks, drought, security of tenure, fragmentation and isolation, and the effects of agricultural encroachment.
Banksia pseudoplumosa is known from eight populations over a 65 km range in the Stirling Range National Park and south-east of Ongerup. Banksia pseudoplumosa occurs in mallee over heath on flat to slightly sloping topography in orange gravelly clay loam over laterite.
The objective of this plan is to abate identified threats and maintain or enhance in situ populations to ensure the long-term preservation of the species in the wild.
