ABSTRACT
The first Tasmanian record of the Prickly Arrowgrass Triglochin mucronata R.Br. was made in a small seasonal lagoon on Vansittart Island in the Furneaux Group in 1969. The Arrowgrass was then found at three sites on Flinders Island. The first two, made in late 1970, were beside the Long Point Saltings and on the nearby Long Point sedge flat. The final early record was made on the inner side of the blocked mouth of Camerons Inlet in 1976. The records made when the Flinders Island localities were searched in 2007, and the two major areas were checked in 2012 and 2013, are set out. The threats to the various localities are noted and suggestions made to safeguard them. The taxon is scheduled, under the Tasmanian Threatened Species Protection Act 1995, as 'endangered'.
