Decumbent shrub 20-60 cm tall (Weston 1995b).

Restricted to the area between Kandos & Portland in the Capertee district of central-eastern NSW. Localities at which specimens have been collected include: Clandulla State Forest; Capertee; 5 km NE of Dark Corner Post Office (Weston 1995b).

Grows in dry sclerophyll forest on sandstone (Harden 1991; Weston 1995b) in heavier clayey, gravelly loam derived from Permian rocks (Blombery & Maloney 1992), at c. 700 m alt. on low ridges (Harden 1991; Blombery & Maloney 1992; Weston 1995b).

This species has yellow flowers. It flowers in spring (Blombery & Maloney 1992), or Jan. to Feb. (Weston 1995b). Few seedlings have been seen in natural populations (Blombery & Maloney 1992).

The following table lists known and perceived threats to this species. Threats are based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) threat classification version 1.1.
