Prasophyllum innubum
Critically Endangered: Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999

This native plant is known only from a very small streamside habitat and sphagnum bog, and rarely on adjacent grassy flats. It grows at altitudes of 1150-1180m.

It is thought that only about 400 individual plants exist.



  • Grazing, trampling and drainage disturbance of habitat by horses and cattle.
  • Removal of creek bank soil and disturbance of habitat by mineral fossickers.
  • Potential threats also include environmental variability due to small population size, climate change, changes in use and management of adjacent land, off-road vehicle activities, horse trail-riding, and illegal collection.
