Only recent location of this species, unfortunately the plants are dead so may be an extinct species in the ACT

Author's notes

In 1996, a herbarium collection of Muellerina bidwillii on Callitris endlicheri was made from this exact location. The photos of the habit and flowers were taken on a second visit in January 1999. We revisited the site on 26/5/18 and after an extensive search of the area we only found a few old, dead specimens (pictured). It is highly likely this population may have gone extinct.

Thanks Paul and natureguy do you think it was the 2003 fires that did it in?
