Button wrinklewort is listed as Endangered under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999, the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995, the ACT Nature Conservation Act 1980 and as Threatened under the Victorian Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988.
Button wrinklewort occurs from Goulburn in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales to Wickliffe on the plains west of Melbourne in Victoria.
The first recovery plan for this species was produced in 1998 (Briggs et al. 1998), although it was not formally adopted as a national plan or in any of the range jurisdictions. This current edition of the Recovery Plan includes an updated set of recovery actions that have been identified through a review of the current priority needs for the species.
The overall objective of this plan is to ensure that all populations consisting of more than 10 plants of button wrinklewort are stable or increasing in size by reducing or managing threats, encouraging sympathetic site management to promote recruitment wherever possible, use supplementary planting where appropriate and increase knowledge of the genetic diversity and response to disturbance of this species.
