#ThreatenedThursday: Mueller Daisy

Mueller Daisy(Brachyscome muelleroides)

Classification: Vulnerable

Little is known about the remaining populations of the Mueller Daisy, a small plant endemic to south-eastern Australia. So little in fact, that since 1900 it has only been recorded from 20 locations. What is evident is that this plant requires a wet habitat in order to survive, the species now restricted to the floodplains of the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers in NSW and Victoria.

Now down to half a dozen or so populations that have been verified, the Mueller Daisy is threatened by invasive weeds, grazing and flooding.
