A PhD study is currently underway to clarify the taxonomic status of the species within the Bertya genus in NSW (M. Fatemi pers. comm.). Data from morphology, anatomy, ultrastructure and allozyme analysis will be used in the study.
Two of the populations are on State Forest Lands and although the species is not harvested, it is potentially at risk from damage as a result of logging and roading activities. Populations in State Forests are, however, managed according to ESFM (Ecologically Sustainable Forest Management) principles and are covered by specific management conditions under existing or proposed Threatened Species Licences. These conditions have been agreed upon by NPWS and are designed to ensure appropriate management and minimise any potential threats to this species from forestry activities.
