Author's notes

Meryla SF / FR known population previously documented by NSW Herbarium but resurveyed to check condition. Several adult plants in long unburnt riparian DSF and scrub dominated by Banksia cunninghamii. Requires fire to promote recruitment. Species at northern limit of distribution here. Area closest to road badly damaged by recreational vehicle misuse combined with discarded human waste plus a dead wombat dumped in creek that supplies local potable water supply.
