eriocarpa is slender shrub that grows in the understory of
rainforest in many parts of western and southern Tasmania. It is
very similar toA. hirtella, but has thinner leaves.
Both species can have white or pink flowers. It can also be confused
with the rainforest Trochocarpaspecies,
but A. hirtella has only one vein visible on the underside of
the leaf, whereas the Trochocarpa species have about 5-7.
