|Scientific Name:||Callitris rhomboidea R.Br. ex Rich. & A.Rich.|
|Taxonomic Source(s):||Farjon, A. 2010. A Handbook of the World's Conifers. Koninklijke Brill, Leiden.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
Due to its wide distribution and relative frequency, this species is regarded as Least Concern despite some decline in some parts of its range.
|Previously published Red List assessments:|
|Range Description:||Sporadically distributed in eastern Australia from Blackdown Tableland in southeast Queensland, through the tablelands and slopes of eastern New South Wales and the far east of Victoria. It also occurs in western Victoria, Kangaroo Is. and Mount Lofty Range in southeastern South Australia as well as a limited area of eastern Tasmania. The extent of occurrence is considerably more than 20,000 km2.|
Native:Australia (New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria)

|Population:||May be locally dominant or in the subcanopy.|
|Current Population Trend:||Stable|
|Habitat and Ecology:||Usually found in open woodland in montane areas but also on coastal heaths and in riparian areas.|
|Continuing decline in area, extent and/or quality of habitat:||Yes|
|Use and Trade:||The termite and rot resistant wood has been locally used for fencing in some areas.|
|Major Threat(s):||Callitris rhomboidea has declined in some parts of its range due to conversion of land for agriculture and pastoralism, overgrazing and the effects of introduced weeds. It has also shown some susceptibility to Phytophthora cinnamomi in areas such as the western Grampians in Victoria (Weste and Kennedy 1997). The overall level of decline is insufficient to meet any of the thresholds for listing as threatened.|
|Conservation Actions:||This species is known from a number of protected areas throughout its range.|
