The Lemon-scented Zieria, Zieria citriodora, is a small shrub that is endemic to south-eastern Australia, where it occurs in a limited area of north-eastern Victoria and south-eastern New South Wales. The species is known from just three populations containing about 450 plants. Current or potential threats include browsing by native herbivores and domestic stock and disturbance from off-road vehicles. The Lemon-scented Zieria is listed as Vulnerable under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999. This national Recovery Plan for Z. citriodora is the first recovery plan for the species, and details its distribution, habitat, potential threats and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
