Taxa that have been adequately searched for and there is no reasonable doubt that the last
Taxa that have not yet been adequately surveyed to be listed under Schedule 1 or 2 are added to the
for survey and evaluation of conservation status so that consideration can be given to their
declaration as threatened flora or fauna. Taxa that are adequately known, are rare but not
threatened, or meet criteria for Near Threatened, or that have been recently removed from the
threatened list for other than taxonomic reasons, are placed in Priority 4. These species require
regular monitoring. Conservation Dependent species are placed in Priority 5.
Priority One – Poorly-known Taxa
Taxa that are known from one or a few collections or sight records (generally less than 5), all on
and Main Roads WA road, gravel and soil reserves, and active mineral leases and under threat of
habitat destruction or degradation. Taxa may be included if they are comparatively well known
from one or more localities but do not meet adequacy of survey requirements and appear to be
under immediate threat from known threatening processes.
Taxa that are known from one or a few collections or sight records, some of which are on lands not
nature reserves, State forest, vacant Crown land, water reserves, etc. Taxa may be included if they
are comparatively well known from one or more localities but do not meet adequacy of survey
requirements and appear to be under immediate threat from known threatening processes.
Taxa that are known from collections or sight records from several localities not under imminent
remaining areas of apparently suitable habitat, much of it not under imminent threat. Taxa may be
included if they are comparatively well known from several localities but do not meet adequacy of
survey requirements and known threatening processes exist that could affect them.
Priority Four – Rare, Near Threatened and other taxa in need of monitoring
1. Rare. Taxa that are considered to be have been adequately surveyed, or for which
of special protection, but could be if present circumstances change. These taxa are usually
represented on conservation lands
2. Near Threatened. Taxa that are considered to have been adequately surveyed and that
3. Taxa that have been removed from the list of threatened species during the past 5 years
Taxa that are not threatened but are subject to a specific conservation program, the cessation of
