The site is bounded to the west by the Western Australian border. The ranges are predominantly composed of Gardiner sandstone. Notes: In addition to its importance for the conservation of rare and poorly known plant taxa, this site is thought to support rare and restricted plant communities. Criteria satisfied: A1 a ii), A1 b ii), B1 b1 ii) Taxa of Australian significance: Corymbia pachycarpa subsp. glabrescens {3K [W]} Taxa of NT significance: Acacia stipulosa {3k [S]}, Buchnera asperata {3kC- (border) only known in study area from this site}, Centipeda racemosa {3k}, Corchorus pumilio {3kC-}, Cullen corallum {3k}, Dicrastylis doranii {3k}, Eucalyptus cupularis {3r}, Gomphrena leptophylla {3k}, Indigofera ammobia {3k}, Jacksonia aculeata {3k}, Pluchea tetranthera {3k}, Polymeria A93357 Western Tanami {3k (border) only known in NT from this site}, Senna curvistyla {3k}, Trianthema oxycalyptra var. oxycalyptra {3r}, Triodia latzii {3k}, Triumfetta clivorum subsp. brevipetala {3k only known in TAN from this site}, Triumfetta johnstonii {3k} Taxa of Southern NT (study area) significance: Ipomoea plebeia {(apparently rare) only known in study area from this site}, Microcarpaea minima {(disjunct & rare) only known in TAN from this site}, Tephrosia oblongata {(disjunct) [S] only known in study area from this site}, Vallisneria nana {(disjunct)}, Xyris complanata {(disjunct)}, Zornia chaetophora {(disjunct)} Taxa of bioregional significance: Corynotheca micrantha var. divaricata {TAN (northern range limit) [N]}, Cyperus aquatilis {TAN (apparently rare) only known in study area from this site}, Cyperus microcephalus subsp. chersophilus {TAN (apparently rare) only known in study area from this site}, Dicliptera armata {TAN (apparently rare) only known in study area from this site}, Dodonaea polyzyga {TAN (apparently rare and southern range limit) [S] only known in study area from this site}, Eucalyptus gamophylla {TAN (northern range limit) [N]}, Leptosema chambersii {TAN (northern limit) [N]}, Oldenlandia spermacocoides {TAN (apparently rare and southern range limit) [S] only known in study area from this site}, Philydrum lanuginosum {TAN (apparently rare) only known in study area from this site}, Rotala occultiflora {TAN (disjunct)}, Stemodia A65613 Tanami {TAN (western range limit) [W]}, Trema tomentosa var. viridis {TAN (apparently rare) only known in TAN from this site} Other taxa only known in TAN bioregion (NT portion) from this site: Cyperus cunninghamii subsp. cunninghamii Type locations of the following were collected from the site: Triodia latzii Vegetation Map Units (mapped as occurring at the site on the 1:1000,000 NT Vegetation Survey Map): Map unit 76 (60 %): Triodia pungens (Soft Spinifex), Triodia schinzii (Feathertop Spinifex) hummock grassland with Acacia tall sparse-shrubland overstorey.
