About the plan
Oreoporanthera petalifera Orch. & J. Davies (1985), commonly known as hill oreoporanthera, is endemic to Tasmania. The species is known from only one population along the North East Ridge of Mt Anne within the Southwest National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The species is at risk from climate change, fire and stochastic events.
Sagina diemensis L.G. Adams (1996), commonly known as pearlwort, is endemic to Tasmania and is known only from two small populations, both of which are located in the Southwest National Park.. One population co-occurs with Oreoporanthera petalifera on the North East Ridge of Mt Anne. The other population is located eight kilometres from the Mt Anne population beside the Weld River. Sagina diemensis is at risk from climate change, fire, trampling and stochastic events.
This national Recovery Plan for Oreoporanthera petalifera and Sagina diemensis, details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
