This terrestrial herb is known only from two collections, the first one of which was made in the year 1845, the other one was made in the year 1897.

The typus locality has now lost almost all native vegetation, and therefore this species can be considered most probably extinct.


The genus Achyrocline contains about ten (?) species.
