 Richea procera (Ericaceae) 2:458

Richea procera is an erect shrub found in scrubby vegetation on poor soils in wet, lowland areas in Southern Tasmania (e.g. on peat on sandstones, or in the south-west).

It can be confused with two alpine species  R. acerosa (which has narrow leaves) and  R. sprengelioides, in which the most mature flowers are at the top of the inflorescence.
