* Calochilus pruinosus was only listed as threatened under State legislation in August 2010. The habitat critical and risk of threats (Section 4 and 5) of this species are yet to be determined.
^ Species that meet the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act) requirements for a recovery plan. Noting that under Section 269 AA of the EPBC Act, a decision was made that Boronia clavata does not require a recovery plan. Therefore this plan will not be adopted for this species.
