Commonwealth Conservation Advice on Pterostylis oreophila (Kiandra Greenhood) (Threatened Species Scientific Committee (TSSC), 2012y) [Conservation Advice].
 
Recovery Plan Decision Recovery Plan required, a high level of planning may be required because of its wide distribution in fragmented subpopulations over three jurisdictions with a high number of stakeholders. In addition, there do not appear to be any programs in place to recover the species and a high level of priority recovery actions may be required (03/04/2012).
