Author's notes

Common in montane bog, though less so than Baeckea utilis, and quite a lot of plants are sick or dead, probably due to the presence of Phytophthora (indicated by dead Persoonia in the forest round the edge of the bog). Most plants are 1-2m high, but there was one about 4-5m, which is very unusual.
