Daphnandra johnsonii

Status: Endangered on the EPBC Act list

This species occurs at a number of locations in the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and SHoalhaven Local Government Areas. It is an aromatic rainforest tree that grows to 20 m tall. When branches are broken from the stem there are ball and socket joints on the main stem. The species is mostly restricted to lowland rainforest, a vegetation type that has been extensively cleared. The species largely reproduces vegetatively and, thus, is clonal with the potential for there to be few genetically distinct individuals.
